FMA quoted in Federal News Radio article
FMA National President Renee Johnson was quoted in an article by Federal News Radio's Nicole Ogrysko, who examinined President Trump's Fiscal Year 2019 budget request. The article provides a detailed look at the impact the budget would have on agencies, if enacted. Johnson called the proposed pay freeze "callous and unfair," and noted the lack of traditional pay parity with the uniformed military. “While we note the president has proposed an inter-agency fund in an effort to advance pay-for-performance, until we see greater detail FMA will continue to call for a judicious pay raise for federal employees,” Johnson concluded.
