Gary Jones is the second UAW president to be sentenced as part of a multiyear corruption probe into the prominent American labor union. His sentencing is among the last in the multiyear corruption probe, which has tarnished the union's reputation, created mistrust among its members and led to federal oversight of the UAW. During the hearing, Jones spoke quickly and somewhat emotionally as he apologized to the court, his family and UAW members. "I failed [my family], and I failed the UAW," he said before asking and pleading the judge for his mercy in sentencing.

DEARBORN, Mich. — Ford Motor previewed its new electric F-150 Lightning pickup earlier than planned during a visit Tuesday by President Joe Biden to the Michigan plant that will produce the vehicle.

The company unexpectedly showed the pickup for Biden’s tour of Ford’s Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, where the vehicle starts production this spring. He also reiterated support for new incentives to spur consumer adoption of EVs and switching the government’s fleet to electric vehicles like the F-150 Lightning. He did not go into details about excluding high-priced EVs from such incentives“The future of the auto industry is electric,” Biden said during a speech inside the plant.

Tech companies and other industries have repeatedly urged the administration not to pick “winners and losers” or attach conditions to funding to address the chip shortage. The Bureau of Labor Statistics said the U.S. motor vehicle and parts sector lost 27,000 jobs in April. The global chip shortage hit automakers hard after many canceled orders when plants were idled during the coronavirus pandemic. President Joe Biden has proposed $50 billion to boost U.S. semiconductor production. Raimondo told MSNBC Friday that the auto chip crisis was a factor in April’s jobs report.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The U.S. auto industry and United Auto Workers union on Friday urged Congress to tie billions of dollars in government funding to boost semiconductor production to the needs of automakers forced to slash production because of chip shortages. Congress “should prioritize production of the semiconductors necessary to assemble vehicles here in the United States. The letter seen by Reuters said the U.S motor vehicle industry is estimated to have lost over 330,000 production units as a result of the crisis. It said the ongoing chip shortage would cost it about $2.5 billion and about 1.1 million units of lost production in 2021.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. lawmakers are pushing for tens of billions of dollars in funding to shift to electric vehicles and away from gas-powered vehicles and build hundreds of thousands of charging stations. The House Democrats proposed a version last year while Donald Trump was president and who backed ending taxpayer subsidies for electric vehicle purchases. President Joe Biden has called for $174 billion in new spending to boost EVs and charging, including $15 billion to help build and support a national charging network of 500,000 stations by 2030. A U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee panel is holding a hearing on several pieces of legislation to boost electric vehicles and charging Wednesday.

Representative Debbie Dingell, a Michigan Democrat, said "electric vehicles must be built here in America by the finest workforce in the world – the American worker.

Democratic presidential nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden delivers remarks in the parking lot outside the United Auto Workers Region 1 offices on September 09, 2020 in Warren, Michigan. Electric vehicles, which Biden strongly supports, could usher in a new era of American manufacturing jobs for the UAW. But they also hurt the labor movement and undermine Biden's goal of creating 1 million new jobs in the U.S. auto industry. A 2018 study by the union found that mass adoption of EVs could cost the union 35,000 jobs, however Gamble said the union believes that number could be less now. Outside of automotive, union organizing received a major setback earlier this month when Amazon workers at a warehouse in Alabama overwhelmingly rejected unionizing.

Union leaders had hoped the campaign just outside Birmingham would spark a new era of worker activism, but instead it has illustrated the continued challenges facing the labor movement. But some warehouse workers involved in the Bessemer battle pointed to other shortcomings in the union drive. In each of those cases, as at Amazon, union leaders bet that workers unhappy with wages and working conditions would jump at the chance to have a union go toe-to-toe with management. The retail workers’ union struggled in Bessemer with some of the same challenges that carmakers previously hurled at the auto workers’ union, known as the UAW. Plott, one of the former Amazon workers, said, “You might be in that area for hours and not see a soul.”
