UMC Public Hearing

Public Hearing

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

10:00am

Grand Central Parkway

On Tuesday, October 15th at the County Commissioners Meeting, Clark County Commissioners approved a public hearing for public comments on the ordinance for the formation of a UMC Governing Board. It was agenda item 50. UMC Governance Board creates uncertainty within our membership by creating many unanswered questions. Your voice, not only as part of the workforce but also as members of the community, is important. UMC is our only “not-for-profit” hospital that serves our community. Any questions, please call your representative at (702) 386-8849.

Legislative Update: Take Action Today!!

Important Legislative Update: Take Action TODAY!

Legislators heard our strong opposition to Assembly Bill 484 yesterday. This legislation would enable Clark County Commissioners to create a new subsidiary corporation that UMC would fall under.

This new corporation would be the new employer of all current employees.

Several UMC SEIU members testified giving their heart felt reasons why they oppose this potentially damaging and unnecessary legislation. Clark County Commissioners Giunchigliani, Collins and Weekly also testified to caution of the unintended consequences a governance change could have.Though there wasn’t a lot of public support of the legislation today, we know that there are a lot of behind-the-scenes discussions going on.AB 484 diverts the discussion from focusing on the core issue of identifying and implementing a dedicated revenue stream. Now this committee will hold a work session tomorrow where they will make a decision as to whether or not this legislation moves to the next step. Take action and phone your legislator today!
