UAW Bosses use strike to hire UAW bosses’ sons

Real Monopoly Bargaining Power:  Two UAW Bosses Guilty of Extortion

Danny Douglas and Jay Campbell, have been sentenced to 18 months and 12 months plus one day, respectively, after being convicted of extortion. It seems the two former United Auto Workers bosses agreed to end an 87-day strike at a GM plant in Pontiac, MI back in 1997 – but only after General Motors agreed to hire Campbell’s son and the son of another UAW official for high-paying jobs they were evidently not qualified for.
