Congress Authorizes Increase of Agriculture Inspectors at U.S. Ports

Washington D.C. – American farmers would face fewer invasive species and pests coming across the border under legislation that passed Congress Monday with overwhelming bipartisan support and now awaits the president’s signature.

The Protecting America’s Food and Agriculture Act authorizes Customs and Border Protection to hire 240 more Agriculture Specialists, 200 Agriculture Technicians and 20 Agriculture Canine Teams per year until the agency’s staffing shortage is eliminated.

The National Treasury Employees Union, which represents CBP employees at the nation’s 328 ports of entry, endorsed the legislation last year and has been instrumental in gathering broad support from Republicans, Democrats, business, industry and agriculture interests around the country.

“CBP Agriculture Specialists are on the front lines at airports, seaports and land ports intercepting dangerous insects, contaminated animal products and diseased plant material,” said NTEU National President Tony Reardon. “This is a stressful job and the inadequate staffing levels are taking a toll.”

CBP’s own workload model calls for an additional 721 Agriculture Specialists in order to fully staff the ports.

NTEU Endorses 3.5 Percent Pay Raise for Federal Employees in 2021

Washington D.C. – Federal employees would receive an average 3.5 percent pay raise in 2021 under legislation introduced in the House and Senate today and endorsed by the National Treasury Employees Union.


The Federal Adjustment of Income Rates (FAIR) Act, sponsored by Sen. Brian Schatz of Hawaii in the Senate and by Rep. Gerry Connolly of Virginia in the House, would raise the standard of living for thousands of middle-class families across the country.


“Sen. Schatz and Rep. Connolly have been advocates, year in and year out, of helping our nation’s civil servants be able to pay their bills, invest in their children’s education and save for retirement,” said NTEU National President Tony Reardon. “Our members will be fully engaged in the effort to pass this bill into law and give federal employees the ability to keep doing what they love: serving the public.”


Federal employees on average earn 26.71 percent less than their counterparts in the private sector, according to a November report by the Federal Salary Council, a key metric in determining federal pay raises. A 3.5 percent pay increase in 2021 would help address this shortfall.
