WHITE HOUSE BUDGET RENEWS ATTACKS ON FEDERAL AND POSTAL EMPLOYEE BENEFITS

On March 11, 2019, the Trump Administration issued its third annual budget proposal and, as expected, President Trump continued his attack on federal and postal employees. Much like previous budgets, the FY 2020 Trump budget attacks our hard-earned benefits that were won through many rounds of contract negotiations and legislative  activities during past years. The proposed cuts closely resemble those of previous years. Listed below are some of these unjust proposals that, if enacted, would have a punishing effect on our active and retired members. All members should rest assured that the NPMHU will be working hard to make certain that these proposals are rejected by Congress and never see the light of day.

This Trump budget for FY 2020 is only a proposal, and is unlikely to be adopted in its current form. But it demonstrates the ongoing priorities of the White House, which clearly seeks to cut wages and benefits for federal and postal employees, while cutting the size of government without any rationale. The NPMHU will continue to work with Congress to ensure that these proposals are roundly rejected.
