We are very pleased to announce that Chad Johnson will assume the roll of Interim Administative Chief for Local 4911. The Board of Directors approved his appointment earlier this week.
As Interim Administrative Chief, Chad will help get the day-to-day operations of Local 4911 in order while supervising staff, assisting stewards, bargaining, and anything else that supports our local. His Interim status will continue until the local hires a permanent Executive Director. Once that occurs, Chad will step back into his role as the AFSCME Area Fields Services Director (AFSD) for California.
While working for Local 4911, Chad will report to the Local 4911 Board of Directors. The AFSCME International Union has also agreed to pay his salary with no additional costs being paid by the Local.
