RE:      Calendar Year 2023 Pay Raise  

 

SUMMARY:  The President has issued an Executive Order implementing the average 4.6 pay raise for the General Schedule federal workforce (pay tables are included).    

 

The President has issued the Executive Order implementing the average 4.6 percent pay increase for General Schedule (GS) federal employees for calendar year 2023.  The 4.6 percent pay increase consists of a 4.1 percent across-the-board increase and an average 0.5 percent increase to locality pay rates.  It is important to note that the 0.5 percent locality pay figure is an average number, meaning some areas will receive locality pay increases below this amount, while others will receive locality pay rate increases slightly above this amount.  These new pay rates will be effective in the first full pay period of 2023. 

 

The new 2023 GS pay tables from OPM can be found on the OPM website at https://www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/pay-leave/salaries-wages/2023/general-schedule. The pay tables are specific for each designated locality pay area (and RUS). 

 

While this pay raise is certainly not as much as federal workers deserve, NTEU is pleased that the President provided a pay raise that is consistent with the amount required by the Federal Employee Pay Comparability Act and equal to that provided for the military in 2023.  As the new year begins, NTEU will continue the fight for fair pay for all federal employees.
