As part of local 2554 efforts to secure an increase in our locality pay SGT at Arms Mike Matzke work on a petition package that he was able to present to the Federal Salary Council in person. At the same time President Amaya, IDO VP Friend, ELS VP Yglesias were able to meet to Congressman Vargas and Congressman Cook to secure letters of support. The letter of support were sent to the Federal Salary Council as well as each member of the President’s Pay Agent.
The combine efforts of local 2554 and the Executive Board hopefully will lead to an increase of locality pay not only for Border Patrol Agents but for all federal employees in the Imperial Valley.
Local 2554 would like to extend our gratitude to Christopher J. Harris

Here are the letters of support from Congressman Juan Vargas 51st District, and Congressman Paul Cook 8th District
