The UAW announced Friday that its former president Gary Jones has sent his resignation from membership in the union.

Jones had faced internal UAW Article 30 charges that would have removed him from office and from his membership, according to a statement from the UAW. This is in the wake of a federal investigation swirling around Jones and former Regional Director Vance Pearson .

Jones had previously resigned his office as President in late November.
