Fiat Chrysler pleads guilty in corruption case
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, now part of Stellantis, has pleaded guilty in a long-running corruption probe, formally admitting Monday that it paid more than $3.5 million in personal expenses for senior UAW officials.
As part of its guilty plea via Zoom in U.S. District Court in Detroit, the company agreed to pay $30 million and submit to an independent compliance monitor for three years. Sentencing was set for June 21.
The scandal netted 15 convictions, including against two former UAW presidents, and led to a consent decree for the union as well.
