National Grievance Over CBP's Failure to Provide Hazardous Duty Pay and Environmental Differential Pay
NTEU has filed a national grievance over CBP's decision to not pay either Hazardous Duty Pay or Environment Differential Pay to those employees who are exposed to COVID-19 because of their work for CBP.
CBP's position is that employees are not eligible for such hazard pay because their position descriptions already take into account the hazardous duties that they perform.
NTEU has requested that CBP immediately begin paying hazardous duty pay and environmental differential pay for deserving employees as one of its remedies in addition to back pay for those differentials that should have been paid to employees who were exposed to COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic.
