The American Council of Employees, a labor group which offers itself as an alternative to the United Auto Workers at Volkswagen's Chattanooga plant, is seeing a leadership change at the top.
Sean Moss, who headed the group since he was named interim president last year, said he's leaving the post to attend to personal matters.
"ACE's fight to protect the independent voice of Volkswagen-Chattanooga employees is incredibly important to the future of our workplace and community. Leading that fight demands a significant contribution of time and attention, and because I must now focus on personal matters, I have decided to step down from the role of president," Moss said in a statement.
ACE said that in accordance with its constitution and bylaws, vice president David Reed assumes the role as the organization's president effective immediately, with elections to be scheduled to fill any resulting vacancies.
"The members of ACE cannot thank Sean enough for his immense contribution to this cause. We have built incredible momentum and remain focused on the goal of establishing a local works council in Chattanooga. I am excited to step forward to help lead that effort," Reed said.
