    UAW Region 1 delegates elect assistant director James Harris as leader

    James Harris will lead Region 1 of the United Auto Workers after delegates from local unions elected the region’s assistant director to fill the vacancy left by Frank Stuglin, who is now secretary-treasurer.

    The promotion is part of a series of leadership shuffles after UAW President Rory Gamble, 65, retired in June after the implementation of a consent decree he negotiated with the U.S. government following a years-long investigation into union corruption that resulted in the convictions of 15 people, including two former UAW presidents.

    “Our focus will continue to be on representing and servicing our members and creating a family of solidarity to achieve gains in our contracts and grow our union,” he said in a statement.

    Region 1 covers the Michigan counties of Huron, Lapeer, Macomb, Oakland, St. Clair, Sanilac, Tuscola and part of Wayne, including Detroit, as well as Canadian UAW locals. Harris has been assistant director of the region since elected in June 2018.
