ELC to start auditing past AUO

The Union has received word that agents were recently told in muster by an El Centro Sector Patrol Agent in Charge that AUO records from past pay periods (which have already been checked and approved by 2 levels of supervisors) would be pulled and “audited.” Agents who had worked an “excessive” (this was not defined by the PAIC) amount of AUO would have to “justify” it to unknown managers. Agents already justify their AUO hours on form G-1012 every pay period. This is nothing more than coercion and intimidation to frighten agents into working less AUO in order to satisfy the bean counters in CBP.

Once again border security takes a backseat to CBP’s screwed-up budget…
