School district, union reach agreement to avoid teachers strike

Aug 29, 2019 by

The Clark County School District and the teachers union reached an agreement Wednesday to prevent what would have been the largest educator strike in Nevada history.

“Today we have avoided a strike, a strike that would have negatively impacted our students and our families that we’re all entrusted to serve,” Clark County School Board President Lola Brooks said.

The district agreed to all of the union’s demands, including a 3% pay increase for teachers, a 2% step increase and a 4% increase to CCSD’s contribution to monthly health insurance premiums. Most important, it also honored a 2016 agreement that would give all teachers who completed three years of professional development a $5,400 salary advancement.
