The NBPC and McAllister and Quinn lobbying firm are optimistic that we will be able to get FLSA back for our members. There have been several factors that have made this more of a real possiblity. One being the Presidents executive order that called for the hiring of 5,000 new BPA's and 10,000 new ICE officers. Another is the fact that (A) CBP Commisioner Mcaleenan and DHS Secretary Kelly have made statements in favor of pay parity within CBP. These are but two of the reasons NBPC believes we can get FLSA back.
