The union has been working with the agency to address those employees who were on leave or otherwise unable to sign the 5% retention incentive during the week it was due this past summer. CBP HRM said that if you didn’t sign that week, you cannot participate – no exceptions.
However, OBP Headquarters has now asked us to try to track down anyone who this applies to so we can forward their names to DC. We do not yet know how it will be addressed, only that the agency is looking for a solution.
If you were not qualified to participate, you still cannot sign up.
But if you were qualified and just couldn’t fill out the form on time, send your name, station, and the reason you couldn’t sign the form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
