Annual Compensation of Federal Employee Advocates
by Ian Smith |
Stories and figures with respect to salaries and benefits of federal employees have been in the news a lot lately. Many of these stories have contended that federal workers are generally overpaid relative to the private sector, but federal employee advocacy groups contend otherwise and say that federal employees have sacrificed enough under the current pay freeze and should not be targeted for further pay cuts.
While the salaries of federal employees and members of Congress are readily available, what about the annual compensation of leaders of federal employee advocacy groups?
The National Journal recently answered this question when it released data on the total compensation packages for “558 chief executives of trade associations, labor unions, interest groups, think tanks, and other nonprofits with a significant presence in Washington.”
Among these individuals are the following:
- Margaret L. Baptiste
National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association
- Don Cantriel
National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association
- John Gage
American Federation of Government Employees
- William Burrus
American Postal Workers Union
- Mary Kay Henry
Service Employees International Union
- Fredric V. Rolando
National Association of Letter Carriers
- Paul Rinaldi
National Air Traffic Controllers Association
- Richard L. Trumka
American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations
- Colleen M. Kelley
National Treasury Employees Union
- John F. Hegarty
National Postal Mail Handlers Union
- Gerald W. McEntee
American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees
Bear in mind that these figures take into account total compensation which, in addition to annual salary, also includes items such as bonuses, benefits, and/or retirement packages.
