The FBI’s ongoing investigation of corruption within the auto industry led to raids four states targeting the United Auto Workers on Wednesday.
FBI and IRS agents raided the homes of UAW President Gary Jones and former President Dennis Williams, the union’s northern Michigan conference center, and at least three other locations, The Detroit News reports.
The raids come as the union is renegotiating labor contracts for 158,00o auto workers.
The four-year federal investigation has already netted convictions of UAW officials and Fiat Chrysler executives accused of bribery and misusing funds.
