Article 28 I - Where mutually agreeable to all employees affected, and approved by the supervisor, employees may trade shifts out of the normal rotation. The supervisor will not unreasonably withhold approval of a request to trade shifts. In those locations with shift-bid programs, the provisions of Article 28 I still apply, regardless of the terms of any local agreement.

NBPC Statement on Operation Strong Safety

Over the past year the Texas Department of Public Safety has conducted a surge along the Texas-Mexico border, entitled Operation Strong Safety.  This was in response to an influx of unaccompanied minors and rampant smuggling activity in the Rio Grande Valley and elsewhere.

The United States Border Patrol is and has been an integral part of these operations, which have been very successful, belying the Obama administration's claim that the border is more secure than it's ever been.  Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske recently told United States Congressional officials that the Border Patrol, “declined participation in the operation.”  He even went as far to say that the Texas Department of Public Safety falsely claimed Border Patrol stats as their own.  This is not true.  CBP is aware of and has condoned Border Patrol's participation in these operations.  Texas DPS has not manipulated numbers and they have not claimed the Border Patrol's stats as their own.  The operations have been conducted jointly and have proven to be very effective. 


OPM Releases Proposed Regulations for BP Pay Reform Act

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has released the proposed regulations regarding the Border Patrol Agent Pay Reform Act.  These are the regulations that will eventually govern pay administration for Border Patrol agents.

We have asked our legal counsel and professional staff to throughly review this document to ensure that these proposed regulations reflect the changes and protections we fought hard for with the passage of BPAPRA of 2014.  Once this review is complete, we will inform OPM of our position and our concerns.  Make no mistake, we will continue to hold OPM’s and DHS’s feet to the fire and to protect our members’ interests and financial security.

The public will have 30 days to comment on the proposed regulations.  The proposed regulations are by no means final and may change during this process. We will keep you informed throughout this process.
