Pres Trump Orders Federal Pay Freeze for 2019
President Trump orders pay freeze for federal workers | More here
12-30-18, Stripes.com — President Donald Trump issued order to freeze federal employee salary rates at current levels in 2019. Trump's order was expected since he has advocated a freeze all year. It was necessary because of the complex law governing federal pay to prevent a large raise from taking effect by default, due to Congress not making a decision regarding a raise. [..snip]
Under the OPM General Schedule, the main pay system for white-collar employees below the executive level, employees move up a step every one, two or three years until hitting the top of a pay grade, where such increases stop. Employees also can be advanced faster than normal as a performance reward. Those "within-grade" raises are worth about 3 percent of salary.
OPM guidance notes that a freeze that has remained in effect since 2013 on salaries for senior political appointees is due to expire on Jan. 5, 2019. Unless a law is enacted reinstating that freeze, they would be due for catch-up raises covering the intervening years. This would result in a raise for Cabinet members, for example, of nearly $11,000 to $210,700. Career executives and other employees at senior levels are paid within a range, with raises based on performance ratings; they still could receive those raises in 2019.
