3.1 PERCENT PAY RAISE EXPECTED FOR 2020 - December 16, 2019
Congressional negotiators have an agreement in principle to fund the remainder of Fiscal Year 2020. The federal workforce is currently operating under a continuing resolution, which runs through December 20, 2019.
While lawmakers are finalizing the spending deal, the package includes a 3.1 percent average pay raise for federal employees in 2020. This would be a 2.6 percent across-the-board increase, and a 0.5 percent boost to locality pay. FMA strongly supports the pay raise and is pleased with this news. We commend lawmakers for their efforts.
