Today, the Professional Aviation Safety Specialists (PASS), AFL-CIO, joined a coalition of federal employee groups in asking congressional appropriators to include a 3.2 percent pay raise for federal workers for fiscal year 2022.
The Federal-Postal Coalition, an alliance of more than 30 organizations that collectively represent more than five million federal and postal workers, retirees and their dependents, sent letters to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees, Subcommittees on Financial Services and General Government. “We respectfully request that you appropriate a 3.2 percent average pay increase for federal workers via a 2.2 percent across-the-board increase, and a 1.0 percent average increase to locality pay rates in 2022, as would be provided by the FAIR Act, H.R. 392,” wrote the coalition. The federal employee pay raise is included in both chambers’ FY2022 Financial Services and General Government appropriations bill. (Read the letters: House Senate)
