CSEA helped lead the way for positive changes at State Department of Motor Vehicles offices across the state.
The union has been working with DMV on several matters, including implementing new hours at the agency’s offices.
DMV recently informed CSEA that the agency will be implementing new schedules on July 8, 2021. Those schedules have all offices closing at 6 p.m., as opposed to 8 p.m. and all offices will be closed on Saturdays.
“I am pleased to report that as a result of CSEA members’ persistence, coupled with the good work of local officers, activists, fellow union members and CSEA staff, that DMV heard us and made the change,” said CSEA President Mary E. Sullivan.
“The DMV worker is dedicated to serving our customers, however the hours and mandated Saturday work was taking an extreme toll on our overall well-being,” said New York City DMV Unit President Dawn Destine.
“We look forward to a better work/life balance. CSEA fought a good fight!”
“DMV is going back to some type of normalcy,” said New York City DMV Unit Vice President Ben Greene.
“They took into account the members’ hardships, but also maintain an efficient flow for the customers.”
