Debra Robinson is an installation voting assistance officer and DHR training coordinator at Fort Bliss, Texas, helping military personnel and their families understand and exercise their voting rights. She’s worked at Fort Bliss in a number of civilian jobs the late 1990s.
Debra first became aware of her union when she filed a grievance over the treatment she received working in the motor pool. The president of the local at the time helped her, but asked her to help someone else in return. Debra then joined the local, started helping other workers, and has been president of NAGE Local R14-89, representing GS workers at Fort Bliss, since 2011.
“As the co-chair of the labor forum, I can do a lot to head off trouble before it starts,’ said Debra. “We don’t have to file many ULPs because of the good relationship we have with management in the forum. They keep us informed and involved in the early stages and we work out a lot.”
Debra and her husband, an Army officer, have a son and a daughter, a dog named Black, and enjoy traveling to area jazz festivals in their spare time.
