Bill Would Boost Federal Wages an Average 8.7 Percent


Washington D.C. – Federal employees would receive an average 8.7 percent pay raise in 2024 under legislation introduced today and endorsed by the National Treasury Employees Union.


“Using fresh economic data, Congress and the administration can make federal pay adjustments that reflect current conditions, and this year’s proposal is on target,” said NTEU National President Tony Reardon. “An average 8.7 percent raise is a bold step and precisely what federal employees around the country need to keep up with rising costs and to begin closing the gap with higher salaries in the private sector.”


The Federal Adjustment of Incomes Rates (FAIR) Act is sponsored by Sen. Brian Schatz of Hawaii and Rep. Gerry Connolly of Virginia. The proposed raise consists of a 4.7 percent across-the-board increase plus an average 4 percent for locality pay, which is important for employees in areas with competitive labor markets and high costs of living. 


Reardon Testifies about Staffing Shortages at Ports of Entry

Washington D.C. – Persistent staffing shortages and the global pandemic are taking a toll on the frontline Customs and Border Protection employees who work at the nation’s ports of entry, NTEU National President Tony Reardon told Congress today. 



“Improving security, trade, and travel, and ensuring the safest possible working environment for CBP personnel at all ports of entry, including the nation’s seaports, are of paramount importance to our members, especially during the recent COVID-19 crisis,” Reardon said. 



Reardon testified before the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border Security, Facilitation and Operations in a hearing to assess the state of America’s seaports. In many cases, workload at the seaports has increased while staffing levels have suffered.



Paid Family Leave Proposal Endorsed by NTEU

Washington D.C. – Federal employees who experience a long-term medical crisis would have access to more paid leave under legislation introduced today in the House and Senate and endorsed by the National Treasury Employees Union.


The Comprehensive Paid Leave for Federal Employees Act would provide up to 12 weeks of paid time off when a federal employee or someone in their immediate family is dealing with a serious illness and extensive recovery.


“Losing a paycheck during a medical emergency is just not something workers should have to do, and this legislation would make sure federal employees are able to care for themselves or their family member without worrying about how they are going to pay their household bills,” said NTEU National President Tony Reardon. “When people talk about pro-family legislation, this is it.”


NTEU Endorses Legislation to Protect Merit-Based Civil Service

Washington D.C.  – Bipartisan legislation to keep the merit-based federal workforce from being politicized was introduced today and endorsed by the National Treasury Employees Union. 


The Saving the Civil Service Act would prevent attempts to replace skilled, qualified career public servants with people chosen for their partisanship. The bill is sponsored by Sen. Tim Kaine and Rep. Gerry Connolly of Virginia, and Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania. 


“It is unfortunate that this legislation is even necessary, but we all saw how the Schedule F proposal from the previous administration was a brazen effort to decimate the competitive service and install political loyalists across government,” said NTEU National President Tony Reardon. “The Saving the Civil Service Act, which already has Democratic and Republican supporters, is about making sure the American people continue to be served by a federal government staffed by experts and professionals.”
