You Think Our Pay Raise Was Puny - Look What The Federal Employees Are Getting.
In our newest contract UFT members will be getting a puny 2% annual raise for the next three years and eight months, the length of the contract. While our raises are less than than the inflation rate. Pity the Federal civilian employees who had their 2.3% annual raise rescinded by President Donald Trump due to the budget impasse and his hostility to civilian public service employees.
The Senate proposed a 1.9% par raise but the House never voted on it.but the Democrats take over next weekend and can vote on the Senate proposal or come up with their own pay raise proposal in January. See the article Here.
The military is exempt from the pay freeze. They are getting a 2.6% annual pay raise for 2019.
I guess there is no happy new year for federal employees. Read the entire article Here.
