Federal Wage System workers at Hill Air Force Base received a pay raise last month following a survey that compared the wages of federal employees with those of private industry in the area.

The survey results showed an average hourly wage adjustment of 4.76% for non-supervisory workers and leads, and 4.62% for supervisors.

The new Wage Rate Schedules for the Utah Wage Area (139R) were effective on Sept. 24.

“The survey done in partnership with AFGE Local 1592 aimed to ensure that federal wage workers were paid fairly and competitively,” said Tim Yasinski, human resources specialist for Hill AFB. “The results of the survey will help to attract and retain a well-qualified workforce, which is essential for the success of our mission at Hill Air Force Base.”

The two-week survey, which was conducted by a team of data collectors from Travis AFB, California, included 225 establishments.

Hill AFB was selected as the host installation for the fiscal 2023 Full-Scale Wage Survey, because it employs the greatest number of federal wage workers in the area.
