TIM CHANEY calls for new leadership in SEIU Local 1000.
TIM CHANEY, a 20-year state worker with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) today announced his candidacy for president of SEIU Local 1000, the largest union of California state employees.
Calling for an end to a top-down style of leadership and the return of an open, responsive, and accountable union, Chaney called on members to stand up and help bring about a union we all need and deserve.
Nominations for various union officers positions at the local and statewide level are scheduled to start in January 2011 and balloting will occur sometime in April 2011.
Chaney is expected later to announce the other members of his team.
