UAW President Gary Jones will take a leave of absence amid federal corruption probe

UAW President Gary Jones will take a leave of absence effective Sunday after a vote by the union’s executive board. 

“The UAW is fighting tooth and nail to ensure our members have a brighter future. I do not want anything to distract from the mission. I want to do what’s best for the members of this great union,” Jones said.

Vice President Rory Gamble will serve as acting president. Gamble negotiated the new four-year labor contract with Ford, which was approved local UAW leaders on Friday. The contract now goes to the union’s rank-and-file for final approval.
