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 our first hundred years.
Along with President Les Dillman our current Executive Board consists of Vice President Eric Jackson, Director of Education Joe Pease, Treasurer Colleen Haynes, Recording
Secretary Rick Murphy, Financial Secretary Beth Lloyd, Director of Health Benefits and MBA Steve Curry, Director of Retirees Andy Kearney, Sergeant At Arms Tommy Mullin,
and Trustees Barbara Kearney, Gary Smith and Ed Donahue.
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,Broomall, Bryn Mawr, Clifton Heights, Coatesville, Chester, Darby, Gladwyne, Glenolden / Folsom, Havertown / Wynnewood, Kennett Square,
Linwood / Marcus Hook, Media, Morton, Narbeth, Newtown Square, Norwood / Essignton, Oxford, Prospect Park, Ridley Park / Woodlyn, Sharon Hill / Folcroft, Swarthmore,
Upper Darby, Villanova / Wayne, West Chester and 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.
