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.
