Since 1981, PMA has been instrumental in protecting the benefits and quality of work-life for managers, management officials, and non-bargaining unit employees, as well as promoting and ensuring new benefits for members.
Areas of focus for PMA have included:
Fighting to prevent the reduction of the Thrift Savings Plan G Fund interest rate, which is designed to provide a higher-than-inflation rate of return on federal retirement investments.
Helping managers get “Left on the Table” performance increases as a cash award.
Working with agencies to promote fair and equitable treatment of managers in pay banded and pay for performance systems.
Beating back proposals to significantly increase retirement contributions from CSRS and FERS participants by the new administration.
Promoting Federal Employees Pay Comparability Act (FEPCA) legislation that would ensure that administration officials do not disregard the recommendations of the Federal Salary Council.
Fighting off current proposals to raise the retirement age, abolish retiree cost of living adjustments, and fighting for a stabilized and reduced contribution from employees for health benefits.
Winning the commitment to limit the number of performance commitments to three for managers.
Winning the same benefits for FERS employees as CSRS related to sick leave upon retirement.
Defeating legislation to change to a high-five-based retirement annuity formula rather than the present high-three formula and will continue to protect against current legislation proposing the same thing. The new proposed formula would reduce the average employee's lifetime retirement benefits by at least 4 percent.
