WASHINGTON – Today, President Biden appointed American Federation of Government Employees National President Everett Kelley to serve on the Federal Salary Council, an advisory body that provides recommendations to the administration on the federal employee locality pay program.
“I am humbled and honored by President Biden’s appointment, and I look forward to working with colleagues on the Federal Salary Council to ensure fair pay for the public servants who protect our borders, secure our communities, ensure we have clean air and water, preserve our natural resources, care for America’s veterans and our most vulnerable, and do so much more to serve Americans across this country every single day,” Kelley said in response.
President Kelley will join AFGE Public Policy Director Jacqueline Simon as the union’s two presidential appointees on the Federal Salary Council. AFGE also congratulates the two additional employee representatives who were appointed today: David J. Holway from the National Association of Government Employees and Patrick J. Yoes from the Fraternal Order of Police.
Kelley has served as AFGE’s national president since February 2020 and was elected for a second term this June during AFGE’s 42nd National Convention. He has been an AFGE member since 1981.
