AFGE Statement on President Obama’s Executive Order to End Pay Freeze

WASHINGTON)—American Federation of Government Employees National President J. David Cox Sr. today issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s Executive Order ending the pay freeze for General Schedule employees with a one percent salary increase for 2014.


“Although the one percent is a pitiful amount that doesn’t begin to compensate for the furloughs and three years of frozen pay, it is a welcome development. We are working with Congress and the administration to make sure this raise will be extended to federal blue collar workers as well.


“To call this raise inadequate is an understatement but it is good news all the same.”
