DETROIT (WKZO) -- United Auto Workers secretary-treasurer Dennis Williams is likely to become the union's next president.

The Reuther Caucus nominated him to succeed Bob King, who is too old for another term under the bylaws of the UAW at 67.  King calls Williams the right man for the job, noting he played a key role in the 2011 contract talks with Ford, General Motors and Chrysler.

UAW members will vote on new leadership in June.
