NBPC Announces Lawsuit to be Filed for Pay Violations

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.
