Washington, DC - President Biden recently announced that he has appointed Patrick Yoes, National President of the Fraternal Order of Police, to the Federal Salary Council.
“It’s an honor to be asked by the President to serve in this capacity,” Yoes said. “As a member of the Council, I will be able to provide this Administration with the views of the FOP on important salary issues affecting Federal law enforcement.”
The FOP has had a seat on the Federal Salary Council over the course of four Administrations—beginning in 2002. National President Yoes is our most recent representative.
“The FOP has had a voice on pay issues for more than 20 years now,” Yoes said. “I am proud to serve and grateful for this opportunity to advocate for our Federal officers.”
The Federal Salary Council was established by the Federal Employees Pay Comparability Act of 1990. The Council meets with the President's Pay Agent to provide views and recommendations on the establishment or modification of pay localities and the level of comparability payments that should be paid to eliminate or reduce pay disparities. The Council also provides recommendations on the coverage of annual surveys on occupations conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
