WHAT WE DO

NBPC Local 2554 represents the Border Patrol Agents of the El Centro Sector, who, on a daily basis, are assaulted by smugglers and Illegal Aliens. Our Sector is constantly the number one Sector for use of force incidents and number 4 for assaults on Agents. This makes Union representation essential. When one of our Agents is involved in a shooting, writing a use of force memo, involved in a vehicle accident, faced with false allegations, FBI, OIG, OPR and MIT interviews, oral replies for corrective action, help with grievances and EEO complaints we are here to help 24/7.


CABRILLO CREDIT UNION COVERS PAYCHECKS DURING FURLOUGH

For the members of NBPC Local 2554 that may be new or may have recently transfered to El Centro Sector, if you have an account at Cabrillo Credit Union you can get a Pay Roll Assurance Loan. PAL was created to help certain federal employees who temporarily don't receive their payroll deposit due to a natural disaster or government shutdown.

If our members do not have an account at Cabrillo Credit Union they can sign up for an account and Cabrillo Credit Union can give them a Furlough Loan.

Nbpc Local 2554 would like to thank all the Border Patrol Agents who have remained on the line and dedicated to the safety of this great country during this government shut down. You selflessly serve our country day in and day out. You deserve a wall, you deserve better equipment, you deserve to have the agency staffed at the 21,000 agents that is required by federal law, and you deserve to be paid. Even though none of these things look like they will happen soon, you are still on the line grinding it out for the American People.
