Curry, 55, will take on the role on July 1 and serve out the remainder of the term until June 2022.
Gamble took charge of the 400,000-strong labor union in late 2019 from Gary Jones, who was ousted for embezzling union funds and sentenced to 28 months in jail.
Curry, who was elected secretary-treasurer in 2018, also directs the heavy truck, general dynamics, and agricultural implementation departments.
