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, and James W. McCullough, 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 following post offices: Ardmore-, Bala Cynwyd-Joe Pease, Broomall-Anthony Talon, Bryn Mawr-Rick Murphy, Clifton Heights-Tim Grover & Rhonda Massari, Coatesville-Keith Bailey, Chester-Alan Jefferson & Dan McGee Darby-Maureen Acquarola, Gladwyne-, Glenolden-Steve Badey, Havertown-Karen McPoyle & Miles Revis, Kennett Square-, Marcus Hook-Belinda Tridente & Elizabeth Robinson, Media-Gerry Gallagher, Morton-Joe Benning, Narbeth-Eric Weibel, Newtown Square-Paul Bongart, Norwood-Mike McDevitt, Oxford-Mike Homola, Prospect Park-, Ridley Park-Jim Craig, Sharon Hill-Gary Smith, Swarthmore-Dan Murphy, Upper Darby-Steve Grassi, Villanova-Nick Palasch, Wayne-Louis Florio & Andy Corr, West Chester-Barry Taylor & Les Dillman
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.
