Senate measure would tie official time with retirement benefits

The Senate is considering two measures that aim to address “official time,” and put restrictions on some federal employee’s retirement benefits.

The Senate is considering two measures that aim to address “official time,” and put restrictions on some federal employee’s retirement benefits, Government Executive reports.

One measure, introduced by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), would prevent employees from counting years where they worked at least 80 percent on union representational duties toward their retirement pensions, as well as prohibit those employees from receiving bonuses, and would change the term, “official time” to “federal taxpayer-funded union time,” according to the report.

Another measure would require the Office of Personnel Management to issue regular reports on official time usage as OPM is not required to issue such reports; the last report was released in 2014, the article notes.
