My name is Terri Heymann, I am a divorced mother of 3. My children are Ashley, 33, and Daniel and Erika, my twins who are 27. I work for the Social Security Administration and have been there for 34 years. I am currently a Claims Specialist. I live in Columbia MD, and work in the Wabash Building in Baltimore MD. I have been an AFGE member from the first day I started at SSA in July 1989. I am currently 2nd VP in Local 1923.
I became a Union Steward in 2015, I have always been an outspoken advocate, so I discovered a real passion for the work of the Union, the unity it signifies and the valuable assistance we offer to our membership. I attended Steward training in 2016, Advanced Steward training, EEO basic and Intermediate training, ULP training and Worker’s Compensation training. I became Women’s and Fair Practices Coordinator for Local 1923 in 2020, In that role I informed the Local of free EEO trainings and Webinars, and sent emails to the local concerning the latest in information on CDC guidelines, news concerning Federal Employee’s, Agency reopenings and the latest in updates and policies. I became Legislative Political Coordinator for Local 1923 in 2021. I represented AFGE and the Social Security Administration by lobbying Congress for oversight of the Agency for the 6 month Telework Evaluation period, an adequate budget, and the reopening of our Contract.
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, hiking, and spending time with family and friends. I am looking forward to being Women’s Coordinator for District 4, and working with each Local to give them the support they may need.
