BPA overtime pay raise signed into law

Today, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for 2024 was signed into law. The law, H.R. 2670, immediately provides GS-12 Border Patrol Agents (BPAs) with an additional 50% of their hourly rate (time and a half) for the obligated overtime hours worked under the BPAPRA.

Agents will receive back pay for any qualifying hours worked from today through the date that it takes the agency to implement the law. There are no other changes to the BPAPRA.

The National Border Patrol Council will continue to update our members and advocate for our membership on all matters that impact the workforce.
