Tell Congress to support a 1.9% pay increase for FY 2019!
The Senate passed a 1.9% pay increase for federal employees in FY 2019, but the House failed to include a provision to increase pay for federal employees. Federal employees have sacrificed a tremendous amount in the name of deficit reduction in recent years. They were forced to accept frozen pay from 2011 - 2013. Since then, annual adjustments have ranged between 1% and 2.1%, but the annual adjustments have lagged far behind private sector wage increases in the same time period. Years of substandard pay adjustments has led to federal workers making an average of 32% less than private sector workers.
HR 6147 is currently in conference, however, the House is out of session until after elections, therefore the final version won't be voted on until mid-November. We want to keep up the pressure on both chambers until the final version is passed.
