HANDS OFF STUDENT LOAN FORGIVENESS SAYS NTEU

[details]The National Treasury Employees Union is urging the Trump administration not to get rid of the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program. The president’s 2018 budget proposes eliminating the program, which forgives remaining student loan balances for employees who work for a government or non-profit organization. But the administration said the program unfairly favors some career choices over others. NTEU said eliminating the program would prevent agencies from recruiting top talent.

A MESSAGE FROM NTEU

Celebrating Public Service Recognition Week

This week, Public Service Recognition Week, we celebrate public employees and all you do for Americans. This recognition is especially meaningful during such uncertain times for federal employees.

In an opinion piece published by Federal News Radio, National President Tony Reardon said that he believes the noble calling to public service is making a comeback. Read his entire column here.

You and your colleagues display that calling each and every day. It is evident in your commitment to assisting taxpayers, feeding schoolchildren and protecting consumers in banking and investing. It is clear in your dedication to putting healthy food on the table and safe drugs in medicine cabinets and in your actions to provide clean air and safe water for all Americans. It can be witnessed in your efforts at the border to meet the dual missions of security and legal trade and tourism. And, there is so much more.

This country is stronger because of the efforts of federal employees and NTEU is proud to stand with you this week and every week.

Read a message from President Reardon to NTEU members.

“...to ensure that every federal employee is treated with dignity and respect.”

Hiring Freeze Counterproductive; Will hurt american people

WASHINGTON – National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU) National President Tony Reardon called the action by the Trump Administration to freeze federal hiring “harmful and counterproductive.”

“A hiring freeze will be harmful and counterproductive, increasing backlogs, decreasing service quality and causing more frustration for Americans seeking help from their government,” said Reardon. “Our government depends upon highly-trained and experienced federal workers being able to carry on with their important work. This puts up a substantial roadblock for agencies.”

“Arbitrary cuts will leave agencies scrambling to serve the public. A hiring freeze takes away the agencies’ ability to make strategic decisions about their workforce,” said Reardon. “The American people rely on the work that federal workers do to protect our food, medicines, our air and water, to safeguard our nuclear weapons and our economy, to assist the most vulnerable senior citizens and young children, and to ensure taxpayers have the help they need.”

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) reviewed a series of hiring freezes and concluded that they disrupted agency operations and diminished federal oversight of programs.

 A hiring freeze would have the opposite impact than intended and would decrease transparency, efficiency and accountability in the federal government. The loss of mission-critical skills, exacerbated by an impending retirement wave, is also a looming danger.

 “Attrition is already taking a heavy toll at many federal agencies as employees depart and there is no replacement to take on the work. Freezing federal hiring could lead to disastrous short-term and long-term impacts and the American people will suffer,” said Reardon. “Many of our agencies are already experiencing severe staffing shortages as a result of budget cuts and sequestration.”

NTEU represents 150,000 employees in 31 agencies and departments.
