Former Union Official Charged in Corruption Probe at Fiat Chrysler

is the highest-ranking UAW official to date to be charged in the federal investigation, which first became public in July 2017. Prosecutors have already charged several other union officials, as well as Fiat Chrysler executives, in the continuing probe, alleging they had used money from a union training-center fund to enrich themselves. Mr. Jewell, who led the UAW’s bargaining team with Fiat Chrysler in 2015 for a new four-year contract, was charged with allegedly violating the Labor Management Relations Act, according to court documents filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Michigan.
