Just days before temporary duty (TDY) instructors were scheduled to report for duty at the USBP Academy, the U.S. Border Patrol notified instructors that they will be provided lodging at the Academy. A similar notice was published on the CBP website, but oddly, that notice left off some important details about the lodging. Below are the pertinent parts of the notices:
Welcome to the new section of the National Border Patrol Council's website - The Real Border Wars. We hope you have taken the time to read the information that has been published to our website since the fiasco, formerly referred to as the CBP sequester, began several months ago.
Due to some false statements being made about the NBPC's current position, and inaccurate directives being issued at a few locations in the Border Patrol, the NBPC decided it was time to publish a series of articles. The initial articles will be intended to: dispel some rumors about the NBPC; clarify the official NBPC position; issue guidance to our members on what the Agency cannot do and what agents can do; and discuss the history and present some plausible theories as to why Border Patrol agents are repeatedly the target of disparate cuts proposed in CBP.

As posted on the Department of Labor Website (www.dol.gov):
Union Member Rights and Officer Responsibilities Under the LMRDA
The Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA) guarantees certain rights to union members and imposes certain responsibilities on union officers. The Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) enforces many LMRDA provisions while other provisions, such as the bill of rights, may only be enforced by union members through private suit in federal court. For more information contact the nearest OLMS field office listed on page 2 of this fact sheet.
