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.
