In their attempt to dispel the fears NARFE has regarding the federal workforce’s rates going up actually proves a concern that myself and many other front line dedicated representatives are screaming about. They point blank tell NARFE that it is the postal workers who are more advanced in age and as such the remaining federal employees should see a decrease. Exactly, do you remember Newton’s 3rd Law? For every Action There is an Equal and Opposite Reaction!!! The National Union Presidents put pen to paper and have mapped it out, we will in all likelihood be stuck with an increase due to us being in a smaller pool with a more aged base as the remaining parties in FEHB are younger and should see a reduction.
