Larry Cirelli, National Business Agent
Larry Cirelli was first elected Region 15 National Business Agent by acclamation at the 2006 Las Vegas Convention, adding a new milestone to a 20-year union career. He was again elected NBA in 2010 following balloting among his region’s active and retired members.
The New Jersey letter carrier started out as a member of Jersey City Branch 42 before transferring to New Jersey Merged Branch 38. From branch to branch to the NBA’s office, Cirelli held a variety of local and regional positions. Notable among these was a seven-year run as a shop steward starting in 1986.
“I wanted to stop carriers from being bullied by management and to help my fellow employees,” Cirelli said.
From 1993 to 1996, he was an Employee Involvement facilitator, and in 1997, he served as Route Inspection Teams leader for Branch 38. A year later, he began five years of service as a Dispute Resolution Process Step B representative. He went on to become a regional administrative assistant for Region 15 before his election as NBA in 2006.
In his latest role as a member of the NALC’s Executive Council, Cirelli continues to strive to give each letter carrier a voice—as well as an ear to hear it.
Cirelli and his wife, Nancy, have four children—a daughter and three sons.
