Dino Chiodo said he will remain president of the Windsor and District Labour Council.
His workload will increase now that he's been acclaimed the new president of CAW Local 444.
Chiodo said the plan is to delegate more of the work at the labour council.
"We've already talked to a number of the executive,asking them to step up do a little bit more in saying that it's just a matter of making sure that people the affiliates the members of our organization are represented properly," Chiodo said.
Chiodo takes over as head of Local 444 from Rick Laporte at the end of the month.
