The key word here is merged. In the 1970's the parent branch was Branch 2812, made up of the Upper Darby, Havertown, Darby, Collingdale and Devon Post Offices.
Through the efforts of branch President Mario :Tabby: Taraborrelli and Director of Education John "Lew" Faber, merger talks began with the other area branches and as a
result, through the years and three more Presidents, Neil McGlade, Don Coughlin, James W. McCullough, Rhonda Massari our current President, what was Branch 2812 Upper
Darby grew to become branch 725 SE PA MERGED.
The senior office in our branch is the West Chester Post Office, its original Charter dates back to January, 1900, and it is from this Charter we celebrate out first hundred years.
Our branch is now the fourth largest in Pennsylvania ( thanks to the vision of President Emeritus Don Coughlin ) and represents almost 1200 members from the follwing post
offices: Ardmore, Bala Cynwyd-Joe Pease, Broomall-Anthony Talon, Bryn Mawr-Rick Murphy, Clifton Heights-Colleen Haynes , Coatesville-Keith Bailey, Chester-Alan Jefferson,
Darby-Maureen Acquarola, Gladwyne- , Glenolden-Steve Badey, Havertown / Wynnewood- Miles Revis, Kennett Square- Edward Donahue, Linwood / Marcus Hook-Belinda
Tridente, Media-Gerry Gallagher, Morton-Joe Benning, Narbeth-Eric Weibel, Newtown Square-Paul Bongart, Norwood / Essignton-Dennis Sinclair, Oxford-Mike Homola, Prospect
Park-Frank Winslow, Ridley Park / Woodlyn-Susan Ersek, Sharon Hill-Gary Smith, Swarthmore-Dan Murphy, Upper Darby- Steve Grassi, Villanova / Wayne-Steve Curry, West
Chester-Jack Daniel, West Grove .
As a result of our mergers with other branches, we have been able to maintain a full-time President and in conjunction with the NALC Business Agents, train over 13 advocates
to aid in facilitating the grievance process in our branch and other branches as well.
