Local 2366’s executive board spoke with Chief Owens this week and requested that we further reduce or end mandatory overtime altogether in Del Rio Sector.
Since a lot of traffic has shifted to other sectors, it should allow us to get back to a more “normal” schedule — whatever that is — and put more agents in the field to do the real work of the USBP. We’re still busier than we’ve ever been, so there’s plenty of work to do in the field.
Chief Owens agreed, so effective Pay Period 21, mandatory overtime will no longer be required in Del Rio Sector. This means agents still need to work the one required OT shift for the current six-week block (PPs 18-20). After that, overtime will be available on a voluntary basis.
