The National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU) has announced that Tony Reardon has been elected as the new president to succeed outgoing president Colleen Kelley.
Reardon is a 25-year NTEU veteran who most recently served as the union’s National Executive Vice President. He promised to work with NTEU chapter leaders and members to define and construct a shared vision for NTEU’s future, one that prepares the union to meet the challenges ahead.
Reardon believes strongly that federal employees deserve fair pay and a secure retirement and is committed to ensuring they can rely on fair promotion and appraisal systems and have the tools and resources they need to do their jobs.
In a statement, Reardon said, “I am honored and humbled by the confidence placed in me by NTEU delegates. 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. Our members do critical work for our country and I will fight for them and be vigorous in my defense of them. I promise to work hard each day to help them realize their aspirations for the future.”
