I wanted to provide you with a brief update on the Voluntary Relocation Program (VRP). I requested an update on the VRP’s from NBPC President Brandon Judd and today received the information below.
In regards to VRP’s, No agents have been notified of their selection.
The sectors/stations have made their selections and the certs have been sent to the agency. There were a few certs that had to be sent back to the Minneapolis Hiring Center for corrections, which unfortunately has held this process up.
The NBPC expects that the Union will receive the certs for review in the next two to three weeks and if there aren’t any problems with the selections, BP agents should start getting notified later this month or early next month.
The notification time frame is dependent on the hiring center making the corrections and getting the certs back in a timely manner for the Union’s review. As you all know the Union is reviewing the VRP selections to make sure the Agency is abiding by the VRP agreement.
As soon as I get any additional information, I will send you an email.
Thank you for everything you do!
