Letter to the Editor

I am FG-334, in the Federal Aviation Administration, Flight Standards District Office. Because the FAA is now considered excepted service, we are told that we do not qualify for the IT raise. We are not covered under the new core compensation pay system, and because of this, it appears that a small number of us will fall through the cracks for the pay raise.

The raise would have helped me for retirement purposes, but since it appears I will not be getting it, I plan on retiring in the next few months. Not giving this raise will have an impact on retaining qualified IT people.
