RIVERSIDE - Twelve new CHP public safety dispatchers training at a CHP facility in Riverside have chosen to become members of their unions, the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) and the CHP Public Safety Dispatchers Association (CHP-PSDA).
The dispatchers learned about the benefits of CSLEA and CHP-PSDA membership on June 18, 2019 during a visit by CSLEA Counsel Stacy Olsen and CHP-PSDA Secretary/Treasurer Steve Fulton.
“CHP dispatchers are a resilient group of pubic safety professionals, but given the nature of their duties, they encounter a lot of stress,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. “Having their union representatives to assist them during trying times is very beneficial. In addition, if questions arise about their performance, our attorneys can assist them at the get-go.”
As members of CSLEA, these dispatchers have immediate access to a CSLEA attorney if needed, a support group of site representatives who can assist by speaking with management, a basic $15,000 life insurance benefit, use of the CSLEA exclusive member discounts program.
“We welcome our newest members and hope they explore all the benefits and services available to them as CSLEA members,” said Barcelona. “Thank you for your service to the state of California!”
