Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)
Temperature Screening


On September 15, 2020, our Union met with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to discuss the Field Office Temperature Screening Expansion implementation within DMV field offices throughout the state.

As part of the effort by the DMV to actively manage the spread and containment of COVID-19 in accordance with CDC and CDPH guidance, the Field Operations Division (FOD) will implement employee and customer focused screening protocols which will include a health questionnaire and temperature screening.

Some of the major details from the meet and confer include the following:

  • The union team emphasized the importance of consistent and thorough screening of all customers and employees, including management, to maintain the health and safety of our represented members.
  • The state team reiterated the importance of all employees openly communicating honestly when it comes to screening and other concerns with management so that issues are resolved safely and quickly.
  • The evolution and progress of safety protocols were discussed as both sides recognized the changing nature of the novel Coronavirus in the current environment.

It is important for all Local 1000-represented employees to know that it isn’t just the State’s job to maintain a safe work environment, but it is an employee right to work in a healthy and safe space. Local 1000 always encourages our members to stand up and speak out to stay safe in the workplace.
