Proposed OPM Regulations Add 13 New Locality Pay Areas

On Monday, the Office of Personnel Management will publish proposed regulations establishing 13 new locality pay areas.

The cities are: Albany, N.Y.; Albuquerque, N.M.; Austin, Texas; Charlotte, N.C.; Colorado Springs, Co.; Davenport, Iowa; Harrisburg, Pa.; Kansas City, Mo.; Laredo, Texas; Las Vegas, Nev.; Palm Bay, Fla.; St. Louis, Mo.; and Tucson, Ariz.

"This is an important step forward for federal employees in these locations," said President Colleen M. Kelley, a member of the Federal Salary Council. "I have been urging action for some time." Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics demonstrates that private sector pay in these areas far exceed the pay these employees are receiving.

This is just one step in the process. The remaining question is when locality pay for these areas and the current areas is actually provided. No increases, or changes, to locality pay have been authorized for the past five years, leaving employees falling further behind their counterparts in the private sector. NTEU will continue to fight to close the pay gap for all federal employees and to provide appropriate locality pay.
