11 Ideas to Boost CBP Morale and Engagement

CBP Officers on duty

A concerted joint effort by the CBP Office of Field Operations (OFO) and NTEU leaders—known as the Deep Dive Initiative—has resulted in 11 suggested action items to create a more engaged and empowered workforce and a better, more productive working relationship between OFO and NTEU.

The suggestions emerged from an NTEU-CBP workgroup that met in May as part of a long-term process to improve employee engagement and morale. These ideas will be presented to the CBP-NTEU OFO Forum for its consideration and approval and a working group will oversee implementation.

Some of the action items include:
1. Strengthening employee development;
2. Creating a more flexible rewards system; and,
3. Cultivating a culture of trust through team building sessions.

NTEU Makes Telework Recommendations to DHS


Under federal law, NTEU has the right to provide input to DHS regarding its proposed policies that impact the DHS employees in our CBP bargaining unit, and the union has exercised those rights in providing comment on telework.

NTEU shared insight on what works and what hinders effective telework programs. That insight comes from NTEU members and leaders who have shared thoughts, ideas and frustration with the union over the past 5 years as CBP implemented the telework program in the NTEU-CBP contract.

Among the recommendations:
· Treating telework employees no differently than traditional office employees;
· Allowing employees to telework up to five days a week, instead of limiting the number of telework days; and,
· Ensuring the availability of all necessary equipment upon the approval of a telework application.

While CBP has made important strides in transitioning to an improved telework program, hopefully these suggestions will continue to expand the telework opportunities for CBP employees.
