Following the release of the Administration’s fiscal year 2011 budget proposal, William R. Dougan, National President of the National Federation of Federal Employees, a national union representing approximately 110,000 federal workers government-wide, issued the following statement:


“We are pleased that the Administration honored their commitment to uphold the principal of civilian-military pay parity in this year’s budget proposal. However, this year’s pay adjustment does little to close the large pay gap between federal and private sector workers. At best, 1.4% is a modest adjustment. But in this economy, a modest increase is better than no increase at all. We will continue to work with the Administration and Congress to fight for a fair pay adjustment for the hardworking federal employees we represent.”
