NTEU Fighting for Higher Increase

Our Union, Our Voice

In recent action concerning federal pay for 2017, the Senate Appropriations Committee approved a spending bill that was silent on federal pay. That would allow the president’s proposed 1.6 percent pay increase to go into effect January 2017.

NTEU firmly believes the proposed 1.6 percent rate is too low and is working to secure congressional support for legislation (S. 2699 and H.R. 4585) providing for a 5.3 percent increase.
