A group of U.S. marshals has filed a complaint with the Office of Special Counsel about the lack of a promotion they feel is deserved, Government Executive
According to the report, 46 regional task force inspectors for the U.S. Marshals Service who are classified as GS-12s have unsuccessfully sought promotion to the GS-13 level, and their case highlights long-standing issues between government’s system of merit promotions and promotions achieved through accretion of duties.
The fight has been ongoing since 2008, and also brings out some conflicts between field offices and headquarters in a hierarchical law enforcement agency operating without permanent leadership, according to the report.
