NTEU elects new president
Tony Reardon has been the No. 2 official at the NTEU since 2013.
Tony Reardon was elected the next president of the National Treasury Employees Union on Aug. 11, the union announced.
The 25-year NTEU veteran has served as the union’s No. 2 since 2013, and will replace outgoing National President Colleen Kelley.
“I am committed to building on Colleen’s legacy and strengthening NTEU’s role as the voice of the federal workforce on Capitol Hill, at the agencies, in the media and in the courts,” Reardon said in a statement.
Another NTEU veteran, Jim Bailey, was elected to take over the national executive vice president role Reardon will be vacating.
Both men will be sworn in Aug. 13, the final day of NTEU’s 55th national convention.
Kelley, who is retiring, served as NTEU president since 1999, and has recently taken a prominent role in holding the Office of Personnel Management to account for the breaches that exposed tens of millions of current and former feds’ personal information.
NTEU represents 150,000 employees in 31 agencies and departments.
