William R. Dougan, national president of the National Federation of Federal Employees, said Tuesday the Senate's fiscal cliff bill will lead to a political standoff that will leave federal employees with an uncertain future.
Defense Deputy Secretary Ashton Carter told DoD components Thursday to draw up plans for full-year continuing resolution, plus sequestration. The approach to deal with across-the-board cuts would be to freeze civilian hiring, cut training, travel and conferences and reduce business technology expenditures.
Inside the Beltway is crisis central. The media must report 24/7 and, during the fiscal cliff showdown, they did. But while earlier stories also included a lot of eye-rolling, could the latest sequestration crisis mean it's "this time for sure?"
Air Force commanders will get orders in the next few days to plan for the possibility of fewer flying hours, providing fewer office supplies and working on fewer IT upgrades. Part of the service's planning will be to figure out how many civilian workers would need to be furloughed and for how long.
Senior Correspondent Mike Causey wants to know: Is your job essential, emergency or mission-critical, and what does that mean? What would happen if you or your agency are told to turn out the lights and go home?
Like Hollywood superheroes, federal workers managed to escape going over the fiscal cliff. But coming up in this regular mini-series is a possible shutdown because of the White House-Congress fight over the debt limit. If you survive that, there is the sequestration time bomb that is ticking and due to go off in March. Other than that, have a nice day.
The Air Force orders commanders to start cutbacks in advance of the next budget emergency.
Members of the House of Representatives who think their congressional districts are the polar opposite of Washington, D.C., would be wise run the numbers before they start slashing the pay of "bloated bureaucrats" and contractors who make up a big portion of their voting-age workforce, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
In the past, when federal workers were furloughed they were told to stop working and go home until further notice. If you were out of town, you were to return ASAP, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. But what happens if the furlough is one day per week and you are on an assignment to Atlanta or Antarctica?
Politicians who are beating up on federal workers are doing a pretty good job of it. Friends of feds are few and far between, maybe even on the endangered species list, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. So what's next?
