TURNER Supports Pay Increase for Civilian Federal Employees
Today Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10), whose district is home to over 15,000 federal civil service employees, voted in favor of passage of the Federal Civilian Workforce Pay Raise Fairness Act of 2019 to provide a pay increase in 2019 for civilian employees of the Federal Government.
“As a consistent advocate of this, I strongly supported passage of the Federal Civilian Workforce Pay Raise Fairness Act of 2019 in the House today,” said Turner. "Civilian federal employees go above and beyond to serve our country and our community. They have earned our support.”
Turner has been a consistent advocate of ensuring federal civilian employees receive a pay increase, expressing his strong opposition to the Administration’s decision to cancel the pay increase back in August 2018. Turner has also urged Congress to reinstate the increases for civilian federal workers before the end of the fiscal year.
U.S. Office of Personnel Management figures show the Dayton region has 15,515 federal civilian employees, with more than 12,000 federal civilian employees working at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base alone.
