Contract Negotiations for Nevada State Employees

WHAT ARE CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS? 

Collective bargaining is the process of negotiating a contract of employment between employees and their employer over wages, working conditions and other issues important to us, the workers. 

A committee of our co-workers — chosen by us — sits down and hammers out an agreement known as a "union contract" on every issue of concern to our bargaining unit. The committee sits at the bargaining table as equals with management. 

Once a collective bargaining agreement has been reached and has been accepted by the AFSCME bargaining team, a majority of AFSCME Local 4041 members must approve the agreement before it can become accepted as a contract.

WHO GETS TO PARTICIPATE? 

Only state employees who are members of AFSCME Local 4041 and are part of one of the four bargaining units certified to negotiate as AFSCME will be able to have a say in contract negotiations. Click here to join AFSCME as a member!
