FMA Priorities

Your FMA membership is the first step to protecting your career and becoming the best public servant you can be.

FMA will continue working for you by developing viable solutions to encourage employee engagement, while creating a positive atmosphere in federal government that promotes excellence and efficiency in public service. Read on to learn more about FMA's priorities in the upcoming year, or visit our Issue Briefs page for more information.


Congress should pass legislation to allow federal agencies the flexibility to extend the probationary period for employees entering the civil service to two years from date of hire. 


Congress should pass legislation to establish and fund initial and ongoing mandatory training requirements for all managers and supervisors across the federal government. This will better equip our next generation of leaders to encourage effectiveness and motivate superior performance.


Congress should allow Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) employees to make deposits for non-deduction federal service performed, in the same manner as Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) employees and former military personnel. 


FMA is calling for a fair pay raise for federal employees, with the traditional pay parity with the uniformed military, in 2022.
