NTEU in the News

Earlier this week, NTEU-endorsed legislation was introduced that would provide federal employees with an average 7.4 average pay raise in 2025.

The Federal Adjustment of Income Rates (FAIR) Act, sponsored by Sen. Brian Schatz of Hawaii and Rep. Gerry Connolly of Virginia, would provide a 4 percent across-the-board increase plus an average 3.4 percent for locality pay. 

“The sponsors of the FAIR Act understand very well that federal agencies need to offer competitive salaries in order to keep their experienced staff and recruit the next generation of federal employees,” said National President Doreen Greenwald. “Federal employees, like all Americans, are just trying to keep up with their monthly bills and provide for their families, and an average 7.4 percent raise next year would help them do that.”

NTEU’s endorsement of the bill made headlines in Government Executive and Federal News Network. Read our press release here.
