Budget Restores Agency Funding, Supports Federal Workers

  spacer Black History MonthSee how NTEU is marking Black History Month

The administration released its budget proposal for fiscal year 2017. Here are four important highlights from the budget blueprint:.

1. The proposed budget begins to reverse the damage of multi-year budget cuts at federal agencies and makes needed investments so federal workers can serve the public.

For example, the budget proposal would give the IRS $12.28 billion—an increase of about $1 billion over this year—bolstering the agency’s efforts to improve taxpayer services, collect more tax revenue to pay for most federal programs and services and narrow the deficit. Read more  

2. The administration is supporting six weeks of paid parental leave for federal employees. NTEU is a strong supporter of congressional paid parental leave bills for federal employees. Passage of this would bring the U.S. government in line with many private-sector companies and help federal agencies with recruitment and retention efforts.

3. Federal employees would benefit from the proposal to allow the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to negotiate directly with pharmacy benefit managers. NTEU has urged that OPM be given this authority that would reduce health care costs for federal employees and retirees enrolled in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program.

4. Though the budget recognizes that federal pay lags private-sector pay, the administration’s proposed 1.6 percent federal pay raise falls far short. NTEU will work in Congress to achieve a fairer pay increase for 2017—one that recognizes the value of the federal workforce.
