Unifor Gives Police Money it Says Former President Accepted in Kickback Scheme

Unifor says it has turned money over to police after former president Jerry Dias accused of accepting $50,000 from a supplier of COVID-19 rapid test kits he promoted.

Unifor says it has turned money over to police that its former president allegedly accepted in a kickback scheme. 

The union says it's acting on legal advice and it's now up to Toronto police to investigate. 

Last month, Unifor accused former president Jerry Dias of accepting $50,000 from a supplier of COVID-19 rapid test kits he promoted to union member employers after an employee filed a complaint to the union. 

He was charged with violating the union's code of ethics and democratic processes. 

A hearing will be held before the national executive board.
