He’s accused of accepting at least $70,000 in 2013-14 from a chiropractor who was paid millions of dollars to make watches for General Motors workers. Investigators also say Pietrzyk was a middleman who passed cash to someone identified as Union Official 1.The charges were filed in a document titled criminal “information,” which means a guilty plea is likely. The new case was filed Friday on the fifth day of the UAW’s strike against GM. A message seeking comment was left for his lawyer, Robert Singer.Pietrzyk of Grand Island, New York, was a senior union official who worked closely with Joe Ashton, now retired as a UAW vice president.
