Federal Employees News Digest : March 18, 2013
suggestion that federal employees have been immune to the effects of recession. "I take exception to that statement and so do all NTEU members who are under a more than two-year pay freeze," Kelley said. Kelley reiterated the union's frequently made point that federal workers already have contributed $103 billion to defi- cit reduction, and said that the Ryan proposal would cost federal employees another $132 billion over the next 10 years by changing federal pay and ben- efit levels, and by boosting the amounts employees contribute to their pensions. "Federal employees are not the only casualties of these constant political attacks," Kelley said. "The public suffers as well when federal agencies lack sufficient resources to carry out their missions in the manner Americans need and expect." To see the budget resolution, go to: http://budget.house.gov/. Continuing resolutions nail down pay freeze extension Both houses of Congress last week worked on legislation to fund govern- ment operations until the end of fiscal 2013 and prevent a government shut- down March 27. The House on March 6 passed a con- tinuing resolution by a vote of 267-151. The legislation would extend the federal civilian pay freeze and preserve sequester cuts across most of the government, but includes significant exceptions for mili- tary pay, veterans affairs and a range of national security items. Except for the exempted expenses, the remainder of the House CR holds most other funding at last year's levels, subject to sequestration cuts. The bill (H.R. 933), incorporates two other bills that provide a full year of defense and military construc- tion/veterans affairs appropriations. The head of the National Treasury Employees Union had urged House law- makers to reject the proposed CR, saying that freezing funding for most agencies at 2012 levels, and then cutting those lev- els, would compromise agency missions. "Many of these agencies, including those represented by NTEU, have faced funding reductions over the last few years that have seriously hampered their ability to accom- plish their missions," Kelley wrote in a let- ter to legislators. She also took aim at the bill's proposed pay freeze extension, noting that federal employees already had contrib- uted toward deficit reduction through the current pay freeze. The bill now goes to the Senate, which last week introduced its own bipartisan CR. That bill also drew the ire of employee unions for its continuation of the pay freeze. "Federal employees now will have suf- fered three years of no pay raises, at the same time hundreds of thousands of them are facing multiple days of furloughs because of sequestration," American March 18, 2013 Vol. 62, No. 33 4 Visit us on the Internet at www.FederalDaily.com continued from page 3 continued on page 5 When you're ready to do something bigger When you're ready to advance your career You are ready for American Public University American Public University is ready to help you move your career forward.
