SACRAMENTO – On July 11, 2022, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) Senior Counsel Ryan Navarre spoke with new Department of Motor Vehicles licensing registration examiners (LREs) to introduce them to CSLEA and the California Organization of Licensing Registration Examiners (COLRE).
Navarre conducted a new employee orientation which gave him the opportunity to discuss union membership, and the benefits and services the union provides.
“We have not yet returned to in-person orientations at DMV, so in addition to speaking via Webex to LREs currently in training, I would also like to remind our current union members at DMV that they can earn $100 for each new LRE who signs up for union membership and names the union member as a sponsor. Signing up for union membership can be done online and doesn’t take but a couple of minutes.”
“Joining CSLEA and COLRE means you support the work that is being done on your behalf to improve salaries, benefits and working conditions,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. “Our union members have access to CSLEA’s proven legal defense fund and legal representation. In addition, union members receive a basic $15,000 life insurance benefit, access to group insurance rates, an exclusive member discounts program, scholarship opportunities and a vote on contract ratification.”
CSLEA welcomed eight LREs to the Bargaining Unit 7 and encouraged union membership. Joining the union is easy with online membership applications. Anyone with questions regarding union membership should contact CSLEA.
