DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union opened a four-day convention Monday where 1,100 members will select a new president and decide whether to approve the first dues increase since 1967.
Dennis Williams, the union’s 61-year-old secretary-treasurer, is expected to be elected president on Wednesday, replacing the retiring Bob King. He was selected last November by union leaders to head a slate of officers for four-year terms.
