DETROIT – Members of the National Treasury Employees Union today elected longtime federal employee and local union leader Doreen Greenwald as the next NTEU National President.
Greenwald, 57, has been NTEU National Executive Vice President since 2021 and was unopposed in the election for the National President. She will replace outgoing National President Tony Reardon, who is retiring.
“I know firsthand the challenges NTEU members face every day, the benefit of NTEU in the workplace and the fight it will take to ensure our union remains strong and our members are treated with the dignity and respect they have earned and deserve,” Greenwald said.
Delegates to NTEU’s 59th National Convention in Detroit also elected Customs and Border Protection Officer Anand Muni as National Executive Vice President, the union’s second highest office.
Muni, 44, has been a member of NTEU since 2009 and is now in his third term as president of Chapter 165 (CBP Oakland/San Francisco).
Greenwald and Muni will be sworn into office on Aug. 10. They were elected to four-year terms.
“Anand and I share a vision for NTEU that recognizes our members in all 34 agencies and will ensure they have formidable representation in the workplace, in the courts, at the bargaining table and on Capitol Hill,” Greenwald said. “All of their voices will be heard.”
Greenwald had a long and successful career as a frontline federal employee with the IRS in her home state of Wisconsin, including 21 years as a revenue officer. She joined NTEU in 1985 and rose through the ranks of her local chapter to become president of NTEU Chapter 1 (IRS Wisconsin), a post she held for 14 years. She has extensive experience negotiating national collective bargaining agreements between NTEU and the IRS, recruiting new members and representing IRS employees across Wisconsin.
After retiring from the IRS, Greenwald moved to Washington in 2020 to join the NTEU staff as special assistant to the national president, where she led the union’s COVID-19 response team and worked with chapter leaders from many different federal agencies with employees represented by NTEU.
Muni, a first generation American, has a been a part of NTEU’s successful efforts to improve working conditions, increase benefits and win greater protections for CBP employees, and said he looks forward to extending that experience to every agency where NTEU represents employees.
“As civil servants, we take a solemn oath to ‘support and defend the Constitution’ and for me, patriotism and support for the union movement are two sides of the same coin,” Muni said.
NTEU represents employees in 34 federal agencies and offices.
