Teachers’ union complaint targets CCSD ‘breach of trust’

The Clark County Education Association filed an unfair labor complaint against the Clark County School District on Wednesday.

Union leaders claim a “serious breach of trust” in that the district unilaterally changed how teachers can move forward on the Professional Growth System for determining salary increases.

Union leaders told the Las Vegas Review-Journal last week they planned to protest the change.

The complaint was submitted to the Employee Management Relations Board, a division of the state’s Department of Business and Industry. The district will have 20 days to respond before both parties can request a hearing before the relations board.

Last week, the district said that a recent memo clarified “minor inconsistencies” between the system manual and the teachers’ contract.

Both parties are negotiating the contract for 2017-18.
