AFSCME Local 4041

Campaign Updates

The Assembly Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committees are scheduled to discuss the PEBP budget on Tuesday April 6, 2021 at 8am. This is an important opportunity for AFSCME members to continue vocalizing our opposition to cuts to our health care and push the legislature to restore funding for our insurance plans. It is up to us, the workers, to push the state to do the right thing and not cut out health care. With a strong, united voice we can fight back on these cuts and make the changes we deserve. Read below on what to say, how to watch the hearing, and how to register to give remarks.
CARSON CITY, NV – Today, the State of Nevada and the American Federation of State County Municipal Employees Local 4041 announced that they have reached a tentative collective bargaining agreement that includes both economic and non-economic provisions and covers four of the 11 bargaining units established for state employees.
The proposed changes to the Public Employees Benefit Program puts state workers in a position to pay more out-of-pocket for our health care needs. While premiums will stay relatively flat, or in some cases lower, the real damage is in the details – the plans in this proposal cut our health care coverage, slash our Basic Life Insurance, and eliminate Long Term Disability Insurance.

And I don’t feel so alone anymore when I feel like new policies or changes are unfair. It’s great to talk to other co-workers about things,” said Victoria.
