The Federal Labor Relations Authority has a new Executive Director according to an announcement made by Acting Chairman Patrick Pizzella today.

William Tosick was appointed to the position in which he will serve as FLRA’s chief operating officer. He will be responsible for management of agency-wide administrative offices, including administrative services, budget and finance, human capital, and information technology. These offices provide services to all FLRA components, including the Authority decisional component, the Office of the General Counsel, and the Federal Service Impasses Panel.

Tosick is new to the FLRA, having recently retired from the United States Marine Corps after 30 years of exemplary service. He served as an Infantry Officer, Aviator, and – for the last 11 years – in various executive leadership positions at Marine Corps Headquarters.

He is a combat veteran, having served multiple tours in Iraq (2004, 2005) and Afghanistan (2012 – 2013) and been awarded two Legions of Merit, two Bronze Star Medals, two Meritorious Service Medals, four Air Medal Strike/Flight Awards, and four Navy/Marine Corps Commendation Medals for his service.

“Bill is an accomplished manager and executive with an unparalleled commitment to public service,” said Acting Chairman Pizzella. “He brings to the FLRA a tremendous breadth of administrative knowledge and experience that make him the ideal choice for this important position.”

It was also recently announced that President Trump renominated Ernest W. DuBester to serve a third consecutive term as a Member of the FLRA.
