Fed groups: Pay and benefits should be off the table in budget talks

A coalition of more than two dozen federal-employee unions and advocacy groups is calling on budget negotiators to come up with a way to undo the across-the-board sequestration budget cuts that are poised to slash agency spending by billions more this year. But following three years of a pay freeze and the recent 16-day government shutdown, the groups are equally adamant that changes to federal employees' pay and benefits should be off the table.

Feds learn furlough status as shutdown looms

Federal employees began learning Friday whether they'll be forced to stay home if the government shuts down next week. Supervisors were tasked with informally telling employees today whether they are classified as "essential" or "nonessential," according to several federal-employee unions briefed by the Obama administration. Congress is prepared to work through the weekend, but the clock is ticking down for lawmakers to agree on a funding bill keeping the lights on at agencies beyond Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year.

Union wants rewrite of phased-retirement rules

The National Treasury Employees Union supports the general idea of phased retirement but has taken issue with some of the specifics set out by the Office of Personnel Management in its draft regulations. NTEU President Colleen Kelley says the rules, in their current form, require would-be phased retirees to have 20 years of experience, which could limit the number of employee eligible for the program. NTEU is also concerned about the lack of an appeals process for feds deemed ineligible for the option.
