Health District Chief in Line for Hefty Raise, Bonus

logo

The man in charge of the Southern Nevada Health District is in line for a raise and hefty bonus, despite the austere contract agreed to by SNHD employees two years ago.  
 
A subcommittee of the Board of Health is recommending a 2.5 % raise for Dr. Joseph Iser, bringing his pay to $253,000 annually, and a two year extension of his contract through 2019. 
 
 
Now, Board of Health member and Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Beers is defending his motion to pay Iser a 15%  bonus amount of $38,000.   
 
“I believe he has effected positive cultural change, particularly in the environmental health area. A small raise and bonus is consistent with what the Clark County manager and Las Vegas city manager received.”
 
Additionally, Beers says paying a bonus rather than a significant salary increase addresses the problem of compaction, in which the second in command of an organization earns almost as much as the person in charge.    
 
 
Beers noted the disparity in Iser’s proposed raise compared with SNHD employees, who received a one-time 1.5 % pay increase in 2014, the first year of their five year contract.  
 
“It’s not the same,” said Beers.  “They’re not the CEO trying to implement cultural change. Employees received the same disparate treatment at Clark County and the City of Las Vegas.”
 
 
Cherie Mancini, the president of SEIU Nevada, which represents Health District employees, says Beers’ focus on richly compensating the CEO at the expense of workers is troubling.
 
“Dr. Iser’s accomplishments did not take place in a vacuum,” said Mancini.  “The raise and bonus proposed for Dr. Iser will serve to further demoralize hard-working employees who agreed to an austere contract in the spirit of community sacrifice.”    
 
 
The Board of Health is expected to vote on the salary increase, contract extension and bonus for Dr. Iser at its September 22nd meeting, 8:30 a.m. at the Southern Nevada Health District Main Facility, 280 S. Decatur Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89107.

Judges’ Orders Pave Way for Clark County to Make Good on Unpaid Raises

For Immediate Release – August 5, 2016
 
Imagine getting a raise from your employer, who then refuses to pay!  That’s the situation some 1,600 Clark County workers found themselves in until this week.  
 
Clark County’s interpretation of SB 241, a law passed by the 2015 Nevada Legislature, prompted County Manager Don Burnette to renege on pay increases due employees with anniversary or hire dates between June 1 through August 24, 2015.  
 
Burnette claimed employees were not covered by a collective bargaining agreement during that interim, and not entitled to raises, per the provisions of SB 241.  
 
Now, in two separate cases, District Court Judges Rob Bare and Linda Bell have ruled counter to the county’s interpretation of its collective bargaining agreement with the Service Employees International Union Nevada Local 1107.  
 
“Employees with June anniversary or hire dates have just received their back pay – increases they were due a year ago!  We are hopeful the latest order from Judge Rob Bare will prompt the County to do the same for employees with anniversary or hire dates between July 1 and August 24 of last year,” said SEIU Nevada President Cherie Mancini. “While the delay has been a hardship for our members, the real losers are Clark County taxpayers, who paid attorneys handsomely to wage an unsuccessful fight against the county’s own employees.”  
 
SEIU 1107 represents 18,000 hardworking Nevadans in the public sector and at major hospitals across the state. They include nurses, health care workers, clerical staff, social workers, and maintenance workers. Visit www.seiunv.org to find out more about the people who care for all Nevadans.
