DMV SCHEDULING CHANGES AND MVLE SAFETY NEWS

As a result of our union's persistence--the good work of your local officers, activists, fellow union members, and CSEA staff-- state DMV offices will be implementing new schedules on July 8, 2021. Offices will close at 6:00 p.m. instead of 8:00 p.m. and Saturday hours are being eliminated.

We’ve also been fighting to make workplaces safer for Motor Vehicle License Examiners (MVLEs), with respect to “instant notification” of results given to driver’s license applicants immediately after their road tests. There have been many instances documented where a failed applicant responded inappropriately or violently, putting the MVLE in grave danger. We are pleased to report that there is progress, as electronic notification is now being field tested. We are hopeful for a full implementation by mid-July.

These are excellent developments CSEA has been pushing for that will go a long way to ensure the safety and security of MVLEs and all members working in state DMV offices throughout New York.

LEGISLATIVE VICTORY ON WORK ZONE SPEED CAMERAS!

Far too many CSEA members have been injured or killed in highway work zones. It took three years of hard work, but CSEA's priority legislation to implement speed cameras in work zones has finally passed both houses of the legislature. This bill will slow drivers down, reduce crashes and injuries, and ensure that CSEA members working on our roads get to go home at the end of the day.

Special thanks to Senator Timothy Kennedy , who was with us from the start and spearheaded this effort, and Assemblyman William B. Magnarelli, who fought for the bill's passage in the Assembly on behalf of workers.

This is an excellent example of how union political action and members getting involved can make a big difference in the lives of workers. Thanks to all the members who sent letters to make this happen. This legislation will help save the lives of members working as highway workers.

Stay Union!

STAY UNION -- The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored both the importance of unions in giving workers a collective voice in the workplace and the urgent need to reform U.S. labor laws to arrest the erosion of those rights.

During the crisis, unionized workers have been able to secure enhanced safety measures, additional premium pay, paid sick time, and a say in the terms of furloughs or work-share arrangements to save jobs. These pandemic-specific benefits build on the many ways unions help workers.

Unionized workers (workers covered by a union contract) earn on average 11.2% more in wages than nonunionized peers (workers in the same industry and occupation with similar education and experience).

Black and Hispanic workers get a larger boost from unionization. Black workers represented by a union are paid 13.7% more than their nonunionized peers. Hispanic workers represented by unions are paid 20.1% more than their nonunionized peers.

You may ask why it matters-- a badly broken system governing collective bargaining has eroded unions and worker power more broadly, contributing to both the suffering during the pandemic and the extreme economic inequality exacerbated by the pandemic.

In spite of efforts to push policy reforms, the U.S. entered the COVID-19 pandemic with a weak system of labor protections. As a result, working people, particularly low-wage workers—who are disproportionately women and workers of color—have largely borne the costs of the pandemic. While providing the “essential” services we rely on, many of these workers have been forced to work without protective gear; many have no access to paid sick leave; and when workers have spoken up about health and safety concerns, they have been fired.

Here is what we can do about it -- urge policymakers to enact reforms that promote workers’ collective power. While one package of needed reforms—the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act—already has widespread political support and has passed the U.S. House of Representatives, there are a range of other practical policy reforms that should be a priority for the first few months of the administration in charge in 2021.

These reforms build on existing legal frameworks and structures of worker power and could be put in place while we take on the larger task of considering new structures that promote workers’ collective power. Leaders who are interested in using their power to halt and reverse the four-decades-old trend of rising inequality and near wage stagnation for most workers can’t afford to wait.

STAY SAFE. STAY STRONG. STAY UNION.
