General membership benefits

There are two basic types of benefits that one receives by becoming a member of AFGE-NBPC Local 2366: legal rights and member benefits. All the administrative services described below are provided by your dues, and cost no additional fee if employed on your behalf.

  1. First and foremost, the Union is concerned in what matters to its members. We regularly engage in dialogue with management at a station and Sector level to remedy concerns that our brought to our attention by members.

    If you have a valid concern, please access the contact tab above and leave a message where a steward can get back to you. These concerns can be personal, unit related, station or Sector-wide. We cannot address problems that we do not know about, so please keep us informed.

  2. If you have a larger concern, affecting membership at a national level, we can also take the steps to resolve those issues. If we feel that it is necessary, we can also invoke the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) to speak directly with the Office of Border Patrol (OBP). For issues of that magnitude contact us or go directly to the NBPC website here.
  3. In addition, we are the sole representatives allowed to represent Agents and employees in administrative investigations. This includes those investigations carried out by the Office of Inspector General (OIG), Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), Office of Internal Affairs (OIA) and Management Inquiries. If you have been advised of an investigation via a Notice to Appear (NTA), please get in contact with us here, or call a steward via the representative list posted at every Border Patrol Station.
  4. Finally, we are available to argue on behalf of agents who are proposed disciplinary or adverse action. These proposals may range from written reprimand to termination of employment. Due to a pre-arranged time table between the Union and the Service, if you are proposed any sort of administrative action, please contact your local steward as soon as possible. Updated steward lists should be posted at all stations on the Union board.
  5. Once you have been defended by the Union in a proposal, the Service will take action and either dismiss or sustain the charges against you. If the charges are sustained the Service will decide whether to affect the proposed discipline or some other, reduced, discipline. If you feel that the discipline is unfair, and the Union concurs, the Union may choose to hire a third party arbiter to hear the case. Once arbitration takes place, the decision is binding on both the part of the Union and the Service. The arbitration process is the unique resource of the Union.
  6. Besides administrative action, the Union also provides limited criminal and civil protection via PORAC. For more information regarding the PORAC service, click here.

Member benefits provided by the Union include a variety of discounts and services. Most of these can be accessed at the official AFGE website. We realize that this is a lot of information to digest, so please contact us or talk to your local union steward if you have any questions.
