CONGRATS TO NWSEO
It is never easy to get any job upgraded, but boosting the grade of those doing clerical and admin support has been particularly hard. OPM considers them overgraded already and there rarelya re enough of them in any agency to get anyone’s attention. But the National Weather Service Employees Organization pulled it off.
The union posted the following announcement on its web site at www.nwseo.org: “NWSEO secured an agreement that upgrades to a GS -8 every Administrative Support Assistant at field offices around the country. The GS -8 upgrade includes approximately one million dollars in extra pay and benefits to the lowest paid NWS employees each and every year from now on.”
