Delegates to the 50th national convention of the National Federation of Federal Employees on Sept. 28. elected NFFE National Secretary-Treasurer Randy Erwin as the union’s new national president.
Erwin succeeds the long-time leader of the union, William R. Dougan, who officially announced his retirement at the convention. David Stamey was elected to succeed Erwin as national secretary-treasurer.
“I am honored to be elected the next national president of the National Federation of Federal Employees," Erwin said. "As the country’s first federal employee union, NFFE has a rich history of fighting for federal employees. I look forward to contributing to that storied history and growing this union over the next four years.”
Erwin also was elected in August to co-chair the Federal Workers Alliance—whose members include 19 unions representing more than 300,000 federal employees—after Dougan resigned his chairmanship of that organization. Erwin will co-chair that alliance along with the National Association of Government Employees’ Sarah Suszczyk.
