FOLLOW-UP POST TO THE VRP and ROB

What is the VRP?  On August 26, 2010, the agency and the NBPC entered into the most recent VRP agreement that continued a test program that was approved by Congress and that was intended to provide Federal Agencies and Federal Employees more move opportunities by decreasing the amount of money an agency would have to pay for relocations.  The test program expired on April 29, 2014, which also ended the negotiated VRP.

RELOCATION PROGRAMS WILL OPEN TO ALL BORDER PATROL AGENTS RESULTING IN INCREASED MOBILITY AND BETTER MORALE

We are pleased to inform you that the Union and Management have agreed to open up two relocation programs. These two programs could start as early as next month.  They are the Voluntary Relocation Program (which originally expired on April 29, 2014) and a new program that will be called the Relocation Opportunity Bulletin (ROB).  

The main difference is that the VRP is a funded program that pays agents to move, whereas the ROB is non-funded and agents will be required to fund their own moves. The ROB will be in place for two years, after which, the NBPC will be able to evaluate and renegotiate if necessary.  The ROB will expire on September 30, 2016. The VRP requires Congressional approval, which the Union and the Agency are currently seeking.  We hope to have a quick resolution to the approval issue so that both programs will move forward expeditiously.

Body Cameras Another Bad Idea from Washington

Commissioner Kerlikowske announced a pilot project last week that could ultimately lead to a requirement that Border Patrol agents wear body cameras. We are opposed to this ill-conceived, politically motivated idea. Our concerns are numerous.

First, trust and respect matter. It was disturbing that the new Commissioner chose to unveil this news in front of an audience of activists who openly advocate against Border Patrol agents and criticize our every action. Not only has he chosen not to sit down with us to discuss this, he failed to mention this change in policy in an interview he did earlier that morning with NBPC Vice President Shawn Moran. This is hardly the best way to establish a respectful relationship with the men and women who protect our borders.
