Gov. Mark Dayton announced today that Josh Tilsen will lead the Bureau of Mediation Services (BMS).
Dayton’s pick of Tilsen was his third appointment of the day. It also filled the final vacancy in his cabinet. Tilsen is currently a full-time hearing officer and mediator with BMS.
“Since 1939, the Bureau has had the responsibility for settling labor disputes constructively and fairly. This work is important to the state’s economy and the state’s workers,” Dayton said in a news release. “Josh Tilsen is respected for his professionalism by both management and labor, and I am confident he will lead this agency well.”
