Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI) has introduced legislation in the U.S. Senate that would provide federal employees on the General Schedule and Wage Grade pay systems with a 3.2% pay increase effective January 2018. The Federal Adjustment of Income Rates (FAIR) bill is similar to Representative Gerry Connolly’s (D-VA) legislation, H.R. 757, which was introduced yesterday in the House.
NTEU strongly supports this Senate legislation, and appreciates Senator Schatz’s continued leadership on pay issues on behalf of federal employees. Once a bill number becomes available, I will share this information.
