Will the pay freeze be extended another three years? Have promotions and within-grade raises been protected? What about federal civil service and social security payments? Are federal retirement rules going to change?

Also on the show, Jessica Klement of the Federal Managers Association. Klement will talk about fighting the anti-fed movement in Congress and FMA’s upcoming national convention and management training seminar on March 15.
