“When you’re getting into a vehicle with a stranger and testing their driving skills and knowledge of the rules of the road, you want and need the protection that your union provides.” – CSLEA President Alan Barcelona
SACRAMENTO –California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) representatives conducted new employee orientations for new Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) licensing registration examiners in Sacramento and Riverside on February 24, 2020. The orientations are an opportunity for CSLEA attorneys to introduce themselves to the new state workers and talk about the services, benefits, and representation CSLEA provides.
LREs spend their days conducting behind the wheel testing of drivers, old and new. They travel in a array of vehicles with drivers they’ve never met.
“When you provide a public safety service such as the one of LREs, there are certainly risks involved,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. “With CSLEA membership, LREs have protection. We want them to enjoy their careers knowing that their union is working for them and will be there for them. One of the reasons our attorneys conduct new employee orientations is so our newest members can put a face with a name and are not hesitant to call or email with questions, suggestions or requests for assistance.”
CSLEA Senior Counsel Ryan Navarre met with LREs in Sacramento and CSLEA Senior Counsel Jim Vitko met with LREs in Riverside.
