Today, Beecher Falls Supervisor Forkey informed a BPA that they have to attend an IA interview. Our Union steward asked the supervisor if he planned on providing the agent with an NTA and advisement of rights? SBPA Forkey stated that he didn’t know if the agent was entitled to representation because Internal Affairs was an outside Agency. He would have to go consult with the Almighty Kuhn.
Armed with a hint from our Steward (the word Internal) and after careful deliberation, Beecher Falls management came to the conclusion that CBP Internal Affairs was indeed an internal part of CBP.
I smell a promotion!
You can’t make this stuff up…
