Update: UAW-GM Deal Could Impact HR
Oct. 21, 2019—A tentative agreement between the United Auto Workers and General Motors would dissolve the UAW-GM Center for Human Resources, reported The Detroit Free Press.
Training programs and other services currently handled by the UAW-GM Center for Human Resources would be transferred to a new “Executive Board-Joint Activities” comprised of an equal number of GM- and UAW-appointed members.
The Center operates training and tuition assistance, which would fall under the Joint Activities board. The deal also would ban using funds from the trusts for “promotional products and novelty items,” which are currently known internally as “trinkets and trash,” and have been used by officials for bribery schemes and embezzlement.
