Wohlford was in the middle of his next three-year expression as store chair and had previously been vice president of Area 292, Collins mentioned.
Wohlford was admitted to the medical center Aug. 25, after remaining diagnosed with COVID-19, Collins stated last 7 days.
By Aug. 27, he had been set on a ventilator.
Terry Dittes, UAW vice president and director of the GM section, called Wohlford “a devoted trade unionist.”
“Greg was a critical leader in selflessly stepping up to make PPE tools to fight the pandemic that in the end claimed his lifestyle,” Dittes reported in a statement. “On behalf of the UAW GM spouse and children we supply our condolences to his household and Area 292 coworkers and we will long remember his type, efficient and selfless management.”
Wohlford’s vaccination status is unclear. His specific age was not quickly available, but Collins claimed Wohlford was in his early 60s, planning for retirement.
“The whole GM family members would like to prolong its deepest sympathies to the Wohlford family,” the automaker reported in a statement. “Greg was a respected chief who manufactured many contributions to our Kokomo operations around the years. He will be remembered for his determination to stand for the passions of UAW employees and families, and to the area local community.”
“I cannot convey to you how a lot we value all of the words and phrases of encouragement and prayers. Thank you,” Wohlford’s daughter wrote in a Fb update Monday, announcing his passing.
