Kelley: CBP Authorization Should Address Staffing Needs

NTEU called on a key House subcommittee to include in pending CBP reauthorization legislation provisions authorizing the hiring of additional CBP Officers and Agriculture Specialists to help meet critical staffing needs at this vital agency.

President Kelley said Congress needs to enact legislation to provide a modest increase in customs and immigration user fees to help meet the administration goal of bringing the total number of CBP Officers to 25,775. NTEU is urging an increase in the immigration and customs user fees by $2 each. More


Adequately Funding CBP Leads to Economic Gains

In other congressional testimony, NTEU argued strongly for enactment of the White House fiscal 2015 budget proposal for CBP.

“The administration’s fiscal 2015 budget recognizes that there is no greater roadblock to legitimate trade and travel efficiency than the lack of sufficient staff at the ports,” said President Kelley.

‘Delays at the ports result in real losses to the U.S. economy,” she told the House Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee in submitted testimony, noting that more than 50 million Americans work for companies engaged in international trade. More


Uniform Settlement at CBP Reimburses Funds

NTEU reached a settlement agreement with CBP that reimburses employees for part of their unspent uniform allowances for fiscal 2013. The deal will return to employees part of the money they were unable to use for required uniforms and equipment because the agency did not have a vendor in place.

Employees who had unspent uniform allowance of $25 or more last year will be compensated roughly 40 percent of the amount not spent.

The union challenged CBP when it failed to put procedures in place, as required by the contract, to let employees use their allowance to purchase uniform items. CBP had made uniform funds available to workers, but for a period of time, no vendor was in place. Even once a vendor was secured, certain uniform items were unavailable for the remainder of the 2013 ordering period. 

CBP reports that a vendor is in place for the 2014 ordering period and that it will begin taking orders for uniforms and equipment next month. NTEU will carefully monitor that vendor to be sure employees can order what the agency requires.
