United Auto Workers President Bob King addresses UAW delegates during a UAW convention in Detroit

DETROIT -- Outgoing United Auto Workers president Bob King wants the UAW to go global. He delivered his final speech as the head of the organization in Detroit Monday, calling on members to support social justice movements and labor alliances around the world.

When King took office four years ago, he had promised to organize the assembly plant of a German or Asian automaker in the U.S., but fell short. Union delegates are meeting this week in Detroit for their 36th UAW Constitutional Convention.
