About NPMHU / National Executive Board

Paul V. Hogrogian

National President

Paul Hogrogian has been an active member of the NPMHU since joining the Postal Service as a Mail Handler in the NJI BMC in 1976. In early 2015, the National Executive Board unanimously selected him to fill the unexpired term of office as National President, with that appointment effective on May 2, 2015. He was re-elected by acclamation at the 2016 National Convention and again in 2020. Preceding this role, Hogrogian has served as the President of Local 300 for more than twelve years. In addition, he has served as the Regional Vice President for the Northeast Region on the National Executive Board for ten years. Prior to becoming Local 300 President, Hogrogian had already served as Vice President for thirteen years, and as Recording Secretary for his Local Union.

President Hogrogian brings a wealth of talent and experience to the position of National President. At the Local level, he has led the NPMHU’s largest Local Union, with more than 4,700 dues-paying members, not simply as its Local President and Vice President, but as the primary representative for all Mail Handlers in the New York Metropolitan Region on contract enforcement matters, in the grievance-arbitration process, and on legislative and political issues.

Hogrogian’s involvement with the NPMHU National Union also has been extensive. He has served as a member of the National Training Committee since 1996, and has been a member of the Field Negotiating Committee during contract negotiations in 1998, 2000, 2006, 2011 and was chief negotiator for the 2016, 2019, and 2022 National Agreements.

Hogrogian was an elected delegate to the last seven NPMHU National Conventions. He has served on an array of convention committees during that time, and was Chairman of the Rules Committee at the 2004, 2008, and 2012 National Conventions. In addition, he served as the National Shop Steward Trainer and sat on the Article 12 Task Force. He is also a member of the Committee on the Future and a key leader on various contractual and legislative matters.
