Robert D. Ajaye
President, Local 2627
Ajaye’s tireless efforts to keep work in-house paid off last year when the city and union reached an agreement that calls for in-sourcing information technology work. DC 37 believes the agreement could increase the city’s IT staff by a few thousand. Ajaye joined the city workforce in 1983 as a Program Analyst at Borough of Manhattan Community College.
He is now an Information Technology Sr. Associate. Ajaye was elected 1st vice president of Local 2627 in 2005 and president in 2008. He is now serving his third term as president. During his tenure, the local’s membership has increased by 2,000. Ajaye is chair of the DC 37 Housing Committee and a past chair of the DC 37 Black History Committee.
