UAW meets to select new president, consider dues increase

Dennis Williams answers questions during a news conference in ChattanoogaBy Bernie Woodall DETROIT (Reuters) – The United Auto Workers union opened a four-day convention on Monday where 1,100 members will select a new president and decide whether to approve the first dues increase since 1967. Dennis Williams, the union’s 61-year-old secretary-treasurer, is expected to be elected president on Wednesday. While Gary Walkowicz, a union official at a Ford Motor Co plant in Dearborn, Michigan, opposes Williams on the ballot, Williams is expected to win easily. Walkowicz four years ago ran against Bob King, the UAW’s outgoing president, and received only a handful of votes.
