The USBP Nationwide Swap Program (NWS) will open on July 18, 2016 @ 2:00 pm Central – August 1, 2016 @ 2:00 pm Central

Employees will have the ability to submit up to 7 locations from a list of available duty stations. There will be no preference of choice. All choices will be considered as a location the employee is willing to move to. All selections are made on the basis of seniority.

As with the previous announcement, employees will receive an email informing them of the location they have been paired with. Employees will have 5 days to respond. Employees who decline the pairing will be removed from the current announcement. Employees who are impacted by their partner declining, will have their name placed back into the program for second round of pairings and possibly a third round of pairings.

The National Border Patrol Council would like to thank Chief Vitiello for all the hard work he's done for and on behalf of the Agents and Agency. Understanding that there was a need for a stable life outside of work and recognizing best practices within the industry, Chief Vitiello, even though he faced opposition, decided to provide a stable work and home life for agents by agreeing to a Bid-For-Shift MOU for all of the Texas Border Patrol Sectors - El Paso, Big Bend, Del Rio, Laredo, and the Rio Grande Valley.

Please use this OWCP Designation of Representation when designating a certified NBPC representative to assist with an OWCP related case.

Do you have to work with an OWCP or CBP Nurse, if you are injured on the job and have an OWCP claim?

Recent actions by CBP nurses, in Injured Employees DOL OWCP cases, have come into question.

Many injured employees may find a contracted nursing service heavily involved in their workers' compensation claim. Injured workers often have questions about the scope and roles of the contracted nurses. Below you will find a description and discussion of the two types of nurses that may be assigned to a claim, OWCP contracted nurses, and employing agency contracted nurses. Each has their own unique role in the return to work effort.
