Roger W. Bledsoe, National Business Agent
Roger W. Bledsoe is the national business agent for Denver Region 4, which serves the letter carriers of Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma and Wyoming. President William H. Young appointed him NBA in May 2009 to fill a vacancy, and he was elected to that position by acclamation at the 2010 Anaheim Convention.
Bledsoe, a member of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Branch 458, became a letter carrier and NALC member in 1980. Since then, he has served as shop steward as well as his branch’s director of safety and health, trustee and recording secretary. Later, he worked with the United States Postal Service as part of the Union Management Pairs program and on the Oklahoma District’s Dispute Resolution Team. He also served as an arbitration advocate.
“The way I saw postal management treating letter carriers convinced me that I needed to get involved,” Bledsoe said.
In 1998, President Vincent R. Sombrotto named Bledsoe a regional administrative assistant for Region 4. Now, as an NBA, Bledsoe wants “to see that every letter carrier is treated with dignity and respect,” he said.
“I want to ensure that every letter carrier can enjoy coming to work and can return home following a day at work,” he said.
Bledsoe has studied at Rose State College in Midwest City, Oklahoma, as well as at South Oklahoma City College. He and his wife, Melinda, have two daughters, Brooke and Jessica. Jessica and her husband, the son of a Goshen, Indiana letter carrier, are the parents of Bledsoe’s granddaughter, Cadence.
