Condolences to the family, from one of the AFGE unionists who learned much from Percy's actions and demeanor. His memory lives on in us.

Percy Daley retired in 1988 as the AFGE Council 220 Executive Vice President. He served as EVP for 6 months. Prior to that he served as Council 220 First Vice President from 1982 to 1988. Percy began working for Social Security in 1957. He served as a Union officer in AFGE primarily in Local 1164 since 1962. He was President of Local 1164 when I first met him in 1976 and retired as President in 1988. He was a pioneer in his Local and the Council. He was a delegate at the first AFGE convention that I attended and the first meeting that I attended of what became Council 220 in Las Vegas in 1976.

Percy was the chief negotiator for his Local regional contract before the first SSA national contract of 1982. He was the chief negotiator for the supplemental field contract in 1983-84 which was the first attempt by the Council to negotiate flextime nationwide in field offices. Percy was the union chief spokesperson for the carry over project in the 80's which was an effort to preserve provisions of over 100 contracts in the field that would have otherwise been superseded by the 1982 contract. He was on the contract preparation team that produced the proposals which were the basis for the 1990 contract.

Percy negotiated, litigated and arbitrated. He was beloved by his constituents in New England and throughout the United States. He was a voice of reason and calm in tumultuous times. He was dedicated and thorough. He always focused on representing SSA employees to the best of his ability. He had respect for his colleagues and his foes and was always willing to devote many hours of his own time representing employees.

Let us all remember this great unionist in the time of his passing.

I have heard of Percy since 1983 and he WAS the union, the man who stood up for all employees. We will always miss him, and those of us still in the union use him as our guide.

I knew Percy as a Council 220 executive. For many years we were on the council's executive board. He was often the voice of reason and moderation on the board. It was a pleasure to serve with such a decent person dedicated to the service of our members. He will be missed by all. Condolences to his family.
