SACRAMENTO – The California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) and the California Organization of Licensing Registration Examiners (COLRE) welcome the opportunity to speak with new licensing registration examiners (LREs) training at the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
It was with great enthusiasm that CSLEA Senior Counsel Ryan Navarre met via teleconference with eight new LREs on November 28th and with 10 new LREs via computer on December 5th. Joining Navarre on December 5th was COLRE President Enrique Razo. The purpose of meeting with the LREs is to introduce them to their union and to answer any questions they may have about their new jobs and how their union can assist them.
“When work issues arise at DMV, union members simply have to call or email us to discuss any issues at hand,” said Navarre. “LREs have unique positions that contribute to the public’s safety and we value their contribution to keeping us safe out on the roads. They also get into vehicles every day with complete strangers to evaluate a driver’s driving skills and knowledge of the rules of the road. There is a certain element of danger to their jobs and we want to be sure they have the opportunity to apply for union membership which really is a great safety net, not to mention, a great support system. It was a pleasure meeting them and answering questions.”
