Lori Giessinger, the president of the Las Vegas City Employees Association, the city’s largest union, will retire from the city effective Monday, city officials confirmed.
Giessinger, who did not return calls for comment, worked for the city for 20 years. She earned $81,914.93 in gross wages in 2012, according to the latest salary data on the city website.
It’s unclear what Giessinger’s retirement means for the union, which represents about 900 city workers. Vice President Martin Toledo did not respond to a request for comment.
The union has faced internal turmoil in recent months. Rank-and-file members recently voted 420-193 to reject a leadership-supported settlement of a labor grievance over work week hours.
The rejection came around the time the union board terminated the services of attorney Bruce Snyder, who had been with the organization since 2001.
