North Dakota Company, as Trump received $400 million from the border wall, urged his supreme border guard to enter into a new labor contract with the Border Patrol Union weeks before the deal was signed in September, a deal that significantly increased the number of union officials allowing them to collect government pay without fulfilling patrol obligations, according to current and former government officials. In a written response, Judd defended the deal and said it reflected Trump`s high regard for border guards. Judd declined to discuss his recent meeting with Trump at the White House, but said the purpose of the meeting was to discuss border security, not the treaty. Judd said several other union officials were present, as well as two senior Trump officials. He said the contract would probably have been concluded earlier, well before the president`s executive order on union time, if it had not been held back by litigation. Q4. Why did the Union not negotiate for the GS-13 and the FLSA? A4. Unlike misinformation, public sector unions (federal governments) cannot negotiate wages and benefits, such as pensions and leave, under federal law; As a result, the Agency does not have the authority to enter into negotiations on wages, differences or other issues related to federal leave and wage management. Simply put, they cannot negotiate on these issues because it is illegal. In addition, through our legislative efforts, the Union has been able, through our lobbying activities, to support members of the U.S.
House of Representatives and the Senate (on both sides of the corridor) in legislation on the reauthorization of BPAs for FLSA compensation; However, these bills are subject to congressional approval in both chambers. With respect to GS-13, we have been working with the current government to seek high-level positions within the Agency, but like FLSA, it is illegal for public sector unions (NBPC) to negotiate GS increases; it is entirely the responsibility of the Human Resources Management Office (OPM) and the rank will end with the mandate. The EU is working to include tasks and obligations in the description of the BPA position in order to justify the GS-13 upgrades. The process is not yet complete. The Union is optimistic, because in the past the Union has managed to penetrate the enlargements of the GS-11 and the GS-12. These upgrades didn`t get us back, it took a lot of work and effort to get there.
