SNHD Workers Secure Big Win in New Agreement

Board of Health Unanimously Approves Tentative Agreement

SNHD Workers Attend Board of Health Meeting on 9/28 Urging Approval of the Tentative Agreement

Las Vegas-“Let the healing begin. We want a healthy, Health District,” said Board of Health Member Chris Giunchigliani on Thursday, September 28, just moments before the board unanimously voted to approve a Tentative Agreement between Southern Nevada Health District management and SEIU Nevada represented employees, for much needed wage increases.

Negotiations lasted nine months and at times were extremely difficult, but SNHD workers and the bargaining team stuck together to fight for fair and equitable wages for all. For several years, employees have worked with SNHD during times of economic and financial crises, sacrificing wage increases to ensure that the District could continue to provide critical services to the community.

When an agreement was reached mid September, member turnout for  ratification reached a record 87%, with 98% voting to approve. On September 28, SNHD workers made their presence felt at the Board of Health meeting, holding signs and speaking during public comment to urge the board to approve the Tentative Agreement.

The Board agreed with us: It’s time to invest in the people who keep SNHD running.
Congratulations to all SNHD workers! Together We Rise!


AGREEMENT HIGHLIGHTS

*2.5% COLA for 2018*
*2.5% COLA for 2019*
Current & Active employees will receive a two (2) step increase for 2018 & 2019

Clark County Workers Overwhelmingly Ratify Agreement

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Thursday, June 15
CONTACT: Karen Backus, Karen.backus@seiu.org

SEIU Nevada Local 1107 members vote overwhelmingly to approve quality services contract with Clark County

Agreement provides stronger voice to workers who keep the county running

LAS VEGAS, NV—The hard-working women and men who keep Clark County running, who maintain our streets and ensure our water is safe to drink, have voted by a margin of 96% to approve a new collective bargaining agreement between the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Nevada Local 1107 and Clark County.

“We stuck together as co-workers, generated thousands of calls to the Board of Commissioners, and rallied at the Government Center to move beyond impasse—when not a single agreement with the county could be reached,” said Brenda Marzan, a senior business systems analyst and vice president of the non-supervisory unit at Clark County. “We’ve secured a good contract by the June 30 deadline that allows us to advance our work and build a better future for our families.”

Following Thursday’s vote count, Michelle Maese, a family services supervisor and member of the union bargaining committee shared how union members turned out in historically high numbers to vote for the three-year agreement. “I’m excited that we’ve won a contract that will strengthen our voice to provide high quality services to all who live, work and visit our community,” stated Maese.

The collective bargaining agreement between SEIU Nevada and Clark County covers more than 5,000 supervisory and non-supervisory employees who provide public services throughout the Las Vegas valley, including the Department of Aviation (McCarran International Airport), Parks & Recreation, Public Works, Water Reclamation District, District Courts and the Department of Juvenile Justice.

The new contract runs through June 30, 2020.
