On February 8, 2011, representatives from AFGE-NBPC Local 2366 met with staff from both Senators for the state of Texas to express their concern about the possible conversion from the current Administratively Uncontrollable Overtime (AUO) system employed by the Border Patrol to a corrupted version of Law Enforcement Availability Pay (LEAP).

Support Your Fellow Union Brothers in the NFL Players Association


Did you know that both the National Border Patrol Council and the NFL Players Association (NFLPA, the labor union representing NFL players) are part of the same organization? That organization is the AFL-CIO, and your union brothers, the members of the NFLPA, need your help. As you may have read in the press, NFL team owners have been strategizing for a lockout of the players when the current collective bargaining agreement (CBA) expires this March. The owners opted out of the current CBA early, and even after numerous bargaining sessions, they only tell the players that the current deal “isn’t working for them.” They have asked for approximately $1 billion back from the players, but not one team claims that it has lost money, even in the worst economic recession since the Great Depression.
