Nobody saw this one coming... Ron Gettelfinger, ran unopposed and was reelected as the president of the United Auto Workers (UAW) at its 34th Constitutional Convention in Las Vegas. Alongside him on the slate were five vice presidents, three of which are expected to be named as liaisons to Ford, Chrysler and General Motors, as well as a secretary-treasurer.

Despite this being a surprise to precisely nobody, it's interesting that Gettelfinger ran completely unopposed, particularly given the strife between his organization and OEMs and their suppliers, as well as the fact that the union has lost enough of its membership to be credited with the lowest numbers since 1942.
