    Fiat Chrysler sentenced for paying more than $3.5M in bribes to UAW leaders

    A federal judge on Tuesday sentenced Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV to pay $30 million for conspiring to break federal labor laws by paying more than $3.5 million in bribes to United Auto Workers leaders.

    FCA, now part of auto giant Stellantis NV, must pay the fine within the next 30 days after pleading guilty in March to one count of conspiracy to violate the Labor Management Relations Act. FCA is not required to pay any sort of restitution.

    The fine is part of a broader felony conviction settlement with federal authorities that includes the appointment of an as-yet-unnamed independent monitor for three years to oversee company compliance with labor laws and oversee the dissolution of a joint training center the United Auto Workers operated with Fiat Chrysler.

    “The nature and circumstances of this offense are very serious,” Judge Paul Borman of the Eastern District of Michigan said during the sentencing. “The history and characteristics of the defendant relating to this charge show a prior pattern culminated in this and was resolved in this plea and sentence.”
