The National Border Patrol Council wishes to thank Glenn Beck and Mercury One for the recent contribution to the Border Patrol Agents Legal Defense and Relief Fund.  Their generous contribution will go towards helping Border Patrol agents in need and the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

We appreciate greatly that Mr. Beck and Mercury One have recognized the hard work and sefless dedication of Border Patrol agents nationwide.  It is good to know that there are those willing to stand shoulder to shoulder with Border Patrol agents and to assist in "Protecting Those Who Protect Our Borders."

Chief Patrol Agent John Pfeifer is disregarding the exclusive representative of Swanton Sector agents and has let his managers run amuck.  His actions have revealed that there are two standards in Swanton Sector:  one for managers and another for Union members.  Union members are being held to higher standards of conduct and facing greater levels of discipline for violating those standards.

The Union has repeatedly brought their concerns to Chief Pfeifer only to have them ignored.  This failure of Chief Pfeifer to take the Union’s concerns seriously has given a green light to Patrol Agent In Charge (PAIC) Kuhn of the Beecher Falls Station to conduct operations in a dangerous manner. 

A letter has been mailed to the last known address for all members concerning a lawsuit related to pay violations. If you did not receive the letter, then that means you have not updated your mailing address with AFGE, which you can do by going to the AFGE website. Included with this message is a copy of the letter.

The law firm of Woodley & McGillivary has extensive experience and success in recovering pay for federal workers, including cases on behalf of Border Patrol agents to recover FLSA pay, hazardous duty pay, and AUO. The NBPC is confident that Woodley & McGillivary will successfully recover any monies related to this matter.

The National Border Patrol Council supports this lawsuit because we believe that the Agency has committed extensive violations of the law that have led to a widespread loss of pay for agents.
