26 Aug Potential Licensed Educators Strike
On Friday, Aug. 23, 2019, the Clark County School District, in a negotiation session with the Clark County Education Association (CCEA), proposed a two-year agreement that would provide additional compensation to all licensed educators based on the additional biennial funding approved by the Nevada Legislature in June 2019.
The offer included a three percent (3%) increase in pay effective 2019-2020, step increases for all eligible licensed educators in both 2019-2020 and 2020-2021, and a four percent (4%) increase in CCSD’s contribution to each licensed educators health insurance costs.
The proposal amounts to approximately $69 million in additional compensation and benefits for licensed educators. In addition, an offer was made for a one-time payment equal to the column movement increase to all employees that qualify under the Professional Growth System (if the District can find the funds and if the parties commit to replace the System).
CCEA has rejected the proposal and called for a strike to commence on Sept. 10, 2019, unless there is a change in CCSD’s offer. CCSD has offered to move to mediation with CCEA regarding this matter to provide additional options in an effort to resolve these issues.
