House lawmakers introduced legislation to repeal cuts to travel reimbursements for DoD employees

Featured Press Release

National President Dougan: "Saddling Defense Workers with this $22.5 million per-year financial burden is a slap in the face."
"Today’s legislation is sorely needed after the Department of Defense unilaterally plowed ahead with implementing a $22.5 million per-year financial burden on the workers who support our military," said Dougan. "We applaud Representatives Kilmer and Jones, as well as our allies on Capitol Hill that support this legislation and who agree that civilian Defense employees have endured enough. Enduring years of pay freezes, pension cuts and furloughs is bad enough, but these cuts to reimbursements are going to have a significant negative impact on employee morale. Saddling Defense workers with this $22.5 million per-year financial burden is a slap in the face."   : : MORE

NFFE Supports Bill to Rollback Unfair Pension Cuts
Originally, increasing federal employee pension contributions in 2012 was used as a way to pay for extending unemployment insurance. Then, members of Congress decided to take the increased contributions a step further in 2013 as a method to balance the budget. Congress once again proved it had no problem balancing the budget on the backs of federal employees. To many in Congress, federal employees are little more than an ATM-machine. Balancing the budget on the backs of federal employees is unacceptable, and Congresswoman Edwards’ bill provides a solid stepping stone to reconcile the floundering workplace morale of federal employees.

National President Dougan: "Federal Workers Have Earned a Pay Adjustment That Reflects the Increased Cost of Living."
NFFE strongly supports Congressman Connolly’s bill to provide federal employees a well-earned and much-needed 3.8 percent pay adjustment in 2016. In the past two years, Congress and the President have enacted woefully insufficient one percent pay adjustments that were preceded by three years of pay freezes. In the last five years, federal employees have lost a significant amount of buying power due to pay adjustments failing to keep up with basic inflation.
