The Automotive Press Association welcomes UAW International President Rory L. Gamble for a “fireside” chat and Q&A moderated by award-winning WWJ-950 AM automotive reporter Jeff Gilbert. Gamble is the first African American President of the UAW and during the show the two will explore a wide range of topics, including Gamble’s experience accepting the role of president in November 2019 after his predecessor stepped down; the industry’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and his role in the creation of the Detroit-3 Auto Task Force; status of COVID-19 safety protocols and vaccination plans; ongoing industry/economic recovery from the pandemic; the shift to EVs from combustible engines and the impact on jobs; and the incoming Biden/Harris Administration on the auto industry.
Gamble will also outline the significant ethics reforms he has put in place in response to the U.S. Attorney’s probe into the union. By agreement with the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, Gamble will be limited in addressing questions on the subject.
