NTEU Chapter 73 - United We Bargin, Divided We Beg

Who We Are

Our mission: To organize federal employees to work together to ensure that every federal employee is treated with dignity and respect.
NTEU is widely known as a smart, tough organization, well-respected for its knowledge of federal employee issues. And for its determination to work with federal agencies, with Congress, and in the courts to protect, promote and expand the rights of those it represents.

Since 1938, NTEU has been driven by the principle that every federal employee should be treated with dignity and respect. In that time, NTEU has grown to represent some 150,000 bargaining unit employees in 31 federal agencies and departments.

NTEU members are represented by an experienced and professional staff in Washington, D.C., seven field offices across the nation and highly-trained, dedicated local leaders in their workplaces.


Tony Reardon Elected NTEU National President

National President of NTEU by delegates to the NTEU's 55th National Convention

Tony Reardon was elected today as the new National President of NTEU by delegates to the union’s 55th national convention. He received 89 percent of the votes cast. NTEU73 President Rick Riley, a delegate at the National Convention, said that the Chapter supported Mr. Reardon’s bid to replace Colleen Kelley as NTE National President.

Reardon, a 25-year NTEU veteran, is currently the NTEU National Executive Vice President.

“I am honored and humbled by the confidence placed in me by NTEU delegates,” Reardon said.

The President-elect promised to work with NTEU chapter leaders and members to construct a shared vision for NTEU’s future. He believes strongly that federal employees deserve fair pay and a secure retirement.

"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," he said.

NTEU delegates also chose Jim Bailey to serve as National Executive Vice President. Bailey also has more than 25 years of NTEU experience, most recently as Director of Field Operations. The new officers will be sworn in Thursday, the closing day of NTEU’s convention. Colleen M. Kelley is retiring after 16 years as National President.
