The National Federation of Federal Employees has appointed William Fenaughty as its new national secretary-treasurer.
The post was previously held by William Dougan, who took over the organization after National President Richard Brown died June 30. Fenaughty was approved unanimously by NFFE’s National Executive Council Friday and will take office in the next few weeks, according to a news release.
Dougan said Fenaughty will bring great experience to the job.
There could not be a better man for the job as far as I’m concerned. His knowledge of the issues, opportunities and challenges our union faces brings much-needed expertise to the national office during this period of transition. I look forward to working with him on a daily basis.”
Fenaughty worked for the Defense Department for 34 years at the Watervliet Arsenal in Watervliet, N.Y. Since retiring in 2002, he has served as NFFE’s national assistant directing business representative, the release stated.
