Doug Cuthbertson has announced in a letter to members that he will not seek another term as Executive Officer of the California Media Workers Guild when his term ends Dec. 31, the Guild is reporting on its website.

Cuthbertson has held the post since 1981, when his predecessor, Fred Fletcher, retired.

Cuthbertson said he was stepping down during a meeting Saturday of the local executive committee, just before nominations were opened for local officers. He has offered to continue working part-time, handling some bargaining and administrative assignments.

Members nominated Carl Hall, a Guild staffer and former Chronicle reporter, to take on the executive officer job.
