Recently OBP published a document on the intranet entitled "BPAPRA Frequently Asked Questions."  One of the answers given to one of the questions had to do with FEPA pay for canine agents on their days off.

The Agency stated that canine agents will receive one hour of BPAPRA pay for care of the dog on their regular work days.  This is to cover care of the dog regardless of when that care is performed.

The National Border Patrol Council strenuously disagrees with the Agency's interpreatation and will oppose it if it remains unchanged.  Nothing in this section of the law gave our attorneys, including prominent overtime pay attorneys, any concern that canine agents would not be paid fairly for off-duty care of the animals.

The NBPC will litigate this, if necessary, and we are confident we would prevail.  This issue is far from over.
