This election, public services are on the ballot! The state legislators we vote for will decide how our jobs and the services we provide are funded in 2021. Local 4041 has endorsed incumbent state legislators who have been champions for public service workers and our collective bargaining rights, as well as new candidates who we know will support public service workers when the legislative session begins in February
In the coming months, we will be negotiating our very first contract with the state under the collective bargaining law that AFSCME members won in 2019. But before we can do that, we must get our bargaining units certified to negotiate. To get our bargaining unit certified, we need DMV staff to sign an authorization card!
Make sure your bargaining unit certified by signing an authorization card – a card that allows you to join in solidarity with your co-workers and authorize your bargaining unit to negotiate as AFSCME.

Nevada state workers stood together and spoke up, the legislature listened and the governor came back to negotiate with us over changes to our working conditions. We came to agreement on reinstating merit pay, reducing furloughs to six days a year and protecting an additional 28 workers from layoffs. This is worker power. This is the union difference.
According to AFSCME Local 4041, the Sisolak administration agreed to the meeting only after members mobilized to have their voice heard through petitions and rallies, and demanded to bargain and ultimately filed an Unfair Labor Practice claim against the state.
Today, hundreds of state employees, family members and supporters gathered at the Nevada State Business Center in Las Vegas, the Governor’s Mansion in Carson City, and online on Facebook Live, to demand Governor Sisolak meet his obligation to workers under the state’s collective bargaining law.
Members of AFSCME Local 4041 have filed an Unfair Labor Practice charge against the Nevada Department of Administration, Steve Sisolak in his capacity as Governor and Nevada Division of Human Resource Management, Frank Richardson in his capacity as Deputy Administrator.

Today, dozens AFSCME Local 4041 members quickly mobilized to share their thoughts with the Legislative Interim Finance Committee about possible state budget changes due to the economic impact of COVID-19. The committee did not act on Governor Steve Sisolak’s proposed furlough plan at Friday’s virtual meeting, but nevertheless, AFSCME members sprung to action to voice their dissatisfaction with the Governor’s proposal, which did not include any input from state workers.
