The Greatest Morale Booster

In-Person Boosts at El Paso sector stations

In Spring 2019, we traveled to the El Paso Sector to provide morale boosts during a very challenging time for that sector. We worked with the Union President, along with their Morale Welfare & Recreation Officer (MWR), to encourage El Paso Agents while large, organized caravans streamed across the border illegally. We scheduled a visit with the Las Cruces station, and the El Paso HQ. In the planning stages, we asked how we could best support them. We learned the Agents were not guaranteed lunch breaks, many eating their lunches while on patrol. So, we decided to provide sack lunches to meet this need. We made up several hundred lunches of Subway sandwiches, chips, cookies and beverages. After addressing the Agents at their muster, we handed out the lunches, Bibles, handwritten thank-you cards and mingled for a few minutes with the Agents. We had sent a Snow-Cone machine ahead of our visit along with a variety of flavored syrups. All was much appreciated by the Agents, many of whom were working overtime, cancelling vacations, and working holidays -- with few days off in between. It felt good to encourage these overworked Agents.

We also delivered a banner to hang in the station as a permanent Thank-You.
