UAW president Gary Jones resigns as union prepares to oust him

The United Auto Workers (UAW) said on Wednesday it has filed charges under its bylaws against its president, accusing him of “false, misleading and inaccurate expense records” and saying those charges could lead to his removal from his elected office and expulsion from the union. The UAW said it had filed charges under Article 30 of its constitution against Gary Jones, who has been linked to an ongoing corruption probe by U.S. federal officials.
