Air Reserve Technicians

Air reserve technicians, commonly referred to as ARTs, are a nucleus of managers, planners and trainers who have knowledge and expertise to smooth Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) units' transition from a peacetime to a wartime environment. They provide management continuity, equipment maintenance and training support to help keep their units combat ready.

Air reserve technicians carry dual status, working as full-time civil service employees for the Air Force and as military members in the same AFRC units where they work as civilians and performing the same job. A civil servant or public servant is a civilian career public sector employee working for a government department or agency. In their civilian role, air reserve technicians provide full-time support throughout the month for their units. In the AFRC, air reserve technicians participate with other reservists on weekends and annual active-duty tours.

It was my understanding that the issue of the 2010 freeze came to a vote before Congress yesterday? Anyone heard the slightest of info?

We will have to wait to see when the freeze is lifted.  I read somewhere that someone want to lift the freeze in 2014 with a .5% pay raise.  I can't seem to find what I read.

It was Obama for 2013. Keep in mind the House has been passing several bills of this nature, which mean nothing unless the Senate approves AND Obama signs them.

Have you ever had such poor service in a restaraunt that you left only a 1 or 2 cent tip? Kind of like "yeah I remembered to tip you but that's all I think you are worth".    That's what the .5% raise reminds me of - intentional insult.  

We have not had pay freezes the past two years. They are pay cuts. If it was a freeze it would match inflation.

I guess you folks haven't yet read that a bill has been introduced now that will suspend step increases as well.  Take a look at this:   http://www.fedsmith.com/article/3294/proposed-legislation-would-temporarily-end-step.htmlmartyb2012-02-05 08:41:01

Even a .5% will help a bit toward the annual increase in FEHB.  But not much.
