A career in the federal workforce might not be the coolest thing to kids. That's one finding from a new survey by the National Treasury Employees Union. It found only 37 percent of parents polled encourage their kids to go into government. Now, NTEU is starting a campaign to change that. President Colleen Kelley joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss the new survey.

House spending bill calls for deep cuts to IRS budget

The House has approved a massive spending bill that would slash funding for the Internal Revenue Service by more than $1 billion next year. The agency, which has been under fire for the improper targeting of conservative groups, would see its current $11.3 billion budget decline by 13 percent under the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations bill for fiscal 2015 passed by the House Wednesday. But that's just one of the the provisions of the bill drawing the ire of the Obama administration, which issued a notice earlier this week threatening to veto the legislation.

Colleen Kelley, President, National Treasury Employees Union

An early House version appropriations language for 2015 would bring the IRS budget below sequestration levels in fiscal 2015. Earlier this week, the Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government approved funding levels that are more than $300 million below what the agency has to spend this year. IRS officials have been adamant that even that level is far too low. The bill comes right after warnings from the Government Accountability Office for the IRS to make some long term budget plans to better deal with an uncertain financial future. Colleen Kelley, president of the National Treasury Employees Union, is looking at what the cuts would mean for agency operations and the workforce. She tells In Depth with Francis Rose these cuts go too far. Read related article by Federal News Radio's Stephanie Wasko.

CFPB, union go back to the drawing board on performance ratings

Following complaints of widespread discrimination, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is overhauling its system for evaluating employee performance. The financial watchdog's performance-appraisal system resulted in "systematically lower ratings" for black and Hispanic employees, employees over the age of 40, employees located in field offices and those employed at lower pay scales, according to report on the performance-appraisal system published by the agency earlier this month.

Following complaints of discrimination, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is giving some employees retroactive pay. And it's overhauling the way it evaluates employees. To make an analogy, it's dropping letter grades and going to pass-fail system . The National Treasury Employees Union negotiated the changes on behalf of agency employees. Union President Colleen Kelley joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss some of the complaints they were hearing from employees.

Senators propose 3.3 percent federal pay hike to start in 2015

Sens. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) and Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) introduced the Federal Adjustment of Income Rates (FAIR) Act Friday, calling for a 3.3 percent pay increase for federal employees for calendar year 2015. Federal employee union leaders praised the proposal, which would raise feds' pay more than the 1 percent President Barack Obama introduced in his 2015 budget proposal. The bill is similar to one introduced in March by House Democrats.
