Obama Unveils his 2017 Military, Federal Pay Raise Proposal

Obama proposed a 1.6 percent pay raise for military and civilian federal employees in a conference call with administration and union officials as part of his 2017 budget.

Locality pay raises are also likely, according to a statement from the Office of Management and Budget. “The specific proposals for base and locality pay will be made in August and November, as is done every year and required by statute, through the exercise of the President’s alternative pay plans.”

The proposal will be included in Obama's budget for fiscal year 2017, which will be unveiled Feb. 9.

This fiscal year, federal employees received a 1.3 percent pay raise as a part of the government funding package passed in December.

In a statement released this week, American Federation of Government Employees National President, J. David Cox Sr., said feds deserve a meaningful increase to make up for years of neglect.

"President Obama has again set the bar far too low by proposing a 1.6 percent pay raise for federal employees in 2017, continuing a regrettable record of denying federal employees even the most basic cost-of-living adjustments,” Cox said.
