CBP has been found to have committed another unfair labor practice and ordered to comply with the RNIAP back pay arbitration award and provide NTEU with the information it needs in order to enforce the award.
Earlier this year, NTEU and CBP had begun discussions on the implementation of the overtime back pay remedy that officers would have earned but for CBP’s improper reliance on RNIAP to avoid its bargaining obligations.
Unfortunately, while CBP was willing to begin discussions on the implementation of the underlying arbitration award, it continued to avoid gathering the information that NTEU would need to properly implement the award.
In response, NTEU filed an unfair labor practice (ULP) charge and the Federal Labor Relations Authority has determined after its investigation that CBP had indeed committed another ULP. As a result, CBP has agreed to post and distribute a NOTICE TO ALL EMPLOYEES informing them that CBP will comply with the arbitration award and provide NTEU with the information NTEU is entitled to in order to enforce the award.
The NOTICE TO ALL EMPLOYEES should already be posted in break room bulletin or other appropriate areas. Please contact the chapter if this is not the case or for more information.
