GM alleges Fiat Chrysler spent millions to bribe UAW leaders

Source: AP

By TOM KRISHER and ED WHITE

DETROIT (AP) General Motors is asking a federal judge to reconsider his dismissal of a lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler based on new allegations that FCA bribed union and GM officials with millions stashed in secret foreign bank accounts.

GM alleges that bribes were paid to former United Auto Workers Vice President Joe Ashton and former union Presidents Dennis Williams and Ron Gettelfinger. It also alleges that bribes were paid to Al Iacobelli, a former FCA labor negotiator who was later hired by GM.

The allegations were made in a court motion filed Monday by GM, which wants to revive the lawsuit that was dismissed in July.

GM alleges that payments were made so the officials would saddle GM with more than $1 billion in additional labor costs.

union contracts is OK, but Unions buying inside company contacts is bad. Its all wrong.
