2019 Pay Raise Finalized, Locality Pay Tables Released

Note: This story has been updated to include the 2019 pay tables issued Thursday.

The White House, as required by law, issued an executive order implementing a 1.9 percent pay raise for federal employees in 2019, retroactive to the first pay period of the year.

The raise includes a 1.4 percent increase across the board, plus 0.5 percent on average for locality pay.

At NTEU’s urging, Congress overturned the president’s pay freeze and approved the 1.9 percent adjustment in February as part of the spending deal that ended the shutdown threat for the rest of the fiscal year.

The 1.9 percent adjustment was a huge victory for federal employees because it replaced a freeze that was already implemented.

NTEU is supporting the FAIR Act, S. 426 and H.R. 1073, to provide employees a 3.6 percent raise in 2020.
