Don't let federal workers be scapegoats; Contact your legislators now!

from NARFE

NARFE is urging all members to contact their members of Congress to fight back against the unfair scapegoating of federal workers in the payroll tax holiday debate. The House Republican leadership has introduced a bill that would freeze federal worker pay for a third year and make drastic changes in the federal retirement system to pay for extending the payroll tax cut and unemployment insurance. The provisions affecting current and future federal employees would: extend the current two-year federal worker pay freeze for one additional year; increase the employee contribution by both Civil Service Retirement System and Federal Employees Retirement System employees by 1.5 percent over three years; create a new category of retirement for new federal employees and anyone not currently vested in FERS that would require employees to contribute 10.2 percent of their salary towards retirement, base their annuity on the highest five years of salary and use a multiplier of 0.7 percent instead of the current 1.1 percent; and end the Social Security supplement for those covered by FERS who retire before age 62, except those who are in a mandatory-retirement age position.

Congressional action is expected this week. To send your message to Congress and Protect America's Heartbeat, click here. more
