UAW President Shawn Fain Under Investigation

ABC News is reporting that United Autoworkers President Shawn Fein is under investigation by an independent federal monitor.

The article reports an investigation was opened in February of this year over allegations Fein retaliated against other union leaders for among other things, refusing to engage in acts of financial misconduct to benefit others, according to the court filing.

The same federal monitor was appointed in in 2021 as the UAW grappled with corruption that resulted in the federal convictions of several former leaders. The monitor was appointed “to remove fraud, corruption and illegality from within the UAW,” the filing said.
