AFSCME members secured the largest wage increases during the 2023 legislative session due to our work at the bargaining table and advocacy at the legislature.
Workers at Nevada DMV, Welfare, and other state agencies file for an election to name AFSCME as exclusive representative
Did you see extra money in your paycheck this week? That’s because state employees like you came together as AFSCME Local 4041 to fight for and win longevity pay and retention bonuses!
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.
My name is Gwyn Davies, I am a compliance investigator for the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles and a member of AFSCME Local 4041. I am also a COVID-19 survivor.
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.
Nevada state employees are coming together to demand a voice on the job! Read on for more information on what state employees are doing to fight for a say in cuts to public services and our wages.
