Gregory Floyd, President City Employees Union Local 237 IBT

Since joining Teamsters Union Local 237 more than 25 years ago, Gregory Floyd has been a committed and dedicated member. His strong leadership abilities enabled him to advance from a hospital police officer to the rank of captain with the NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation (HHC). At the age of 27, he made his mark as the youngest hospital police captain in the HHC’s history. In further recognition of his leadership, Floyd was elected vice president of the NYC Hospital Police Guardians Association.

In 1994, he was appointed Teamsters Local 237’s deputy director for peace officer titles. Later that year, Floyd was appointed secretary to the New York State AFL-CIO’s Committee of Police and Law Enforcement Officers. He became director of Local 237’s Citywide Division in 1999. In January of 2003 he was elected to serve as trustee on Local 237’s executive board. A year later, he won election as the union’s secretary-treasurer and was also appointed chief negotiator.

Floyd was elected to serve as the union’s 5th President in its 55 year history on March 30, 2007. He was elected to his first full term as president on October 5, 2009. He is also the host of a public affairs program on radio station WWRL 1600 AM, and is a featured columnist for both the Amsterdam News and The Huffington Post. Floyd is married to Wendy Bolton-Floyd, an author. They have two children, Jessica, 13 and Jonathan, 9.
