That’s right. While we wait for Clark County to return to the bargaining table or move ahead with appointing a binding fact-finder to resolve our long-delayed contract, the Clark County Commission this week awarded County Manager Don Burnette a $24-an-hour RAISE—to $262,597 a year!!!
That means Burnette now makes $126/hour — almost 5X what our average county employee member earns!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! Clark County: Return to the table and bargain a fair contract with our members!!!

To win back this wage cut – which we accepted when the county was struggling during the Great Recession – we collected 1,800 signatures of support, made our case before the County Commission, ratified a proposal — and now they are showing us the money.
OUR VOICE MADE A DIFFERENCE! And we proved that we’re stronger together.
And … we continue to fight for a new contract. Our current proposal calls for an 11% total increase over a 4-year contract and preservation of longevity pay.
