What’s ahead for feds in 2018?


What does 2018 have in store for federal workers?

More of the same? Less?

Will there be different attacks on the federal service or will politicians cater to the huge civil service portion of their districts in places with Veterans Affairs hospitals, federal prisons, Army, Navy, Air Force or Marine Corps bases, IRS centers and major federal complexes? If so it could be a much more pleasant ride for feds.

This week on Your Turn (10 a.m. EST), Federal News Radio reporters Nicole Ogrysko and Jory Heckman join host Mike Causey to discuss what happened in 2017, what didn’t happen but could have, and why. Also what might (as in M-I-G-H-T) be ahead for federal workers, postal employees, retirees, spouses and federal contractors in 2018.

Nicole will also talk about coming changes in the Thrift Savings Plan. Jory will look at the so-called Trump effect on the civil service and retirements.
