DETROIT (WKZO) -- United Auto Workers former secretary-treasurer Dennis Williams made his first speech as the union's new president Thursday afternoon.
Williams was elected with 98-percent of the vote by delegates at the UAW constitutional convention in Detroit Wednesday. He spoke about the two-tier wage system a part of his address. Veteran workers make around 28-dollars an hour, but new workers start at 14-dollars an hour and their pay is capped at 19-dollars an hour.
Gary Casteel was elected to replace Williams as secretary-treasurer.
