2021 Legislative Session

The 81st Nevada legislative session adjourned sine die as May passed into June, with some good, pro-worker legislation passed. Below are victories of AFSCME Local 4041 priorities: 

SB360 - The legislature passed AFSCME’s top priority bill, Senate Bill 360, which adds a third classified state employee member to the Public Employees Benefit Plan (PEBP) Board, from a union that represents the largest number of state classified employees, which at the moment is Local 4041. This gives our union a voice on PEBP, which we previously did not have. Having a voice truly representing rank and file state employees is an important first step in making PEBP more responsive to the needs of state workers.

AB 493 – The state employee pay bill included the 3% wage increase for FY ’23 that was negotiated by the Local 4041 bargaining team, affecting workers in the 4 certified bargaining units covered under the recently ratified collective bargaining agreement, or CBA. Workers in non-certified bargaining units will receive a 1% wage increase in FY ’23. 

The Local 4041 bargaining team will be heading back to the bargaining table soon to re-open the contract for wage increases for FY’22, as the state will receive billions in federal aid over the summer.
