City of Las Vegas to go to 4-Day Work Week

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- The city of Las Vegas and its largest union, the Las Vegas City Employees Association, have reached a tentative agreement that could save the city more than $20 million over the next few years.

The agreement calls for the 1,400 workers covered under the CEA contract to go to a four-day, 38-hour work week starting in January. The plan would close many of the city functions on Fridays. Employees would be paid for 38 hours of work.

The city says it is working on plans to reduce the impacts to to the public due to the shortened week.

The city would also close the week of Dec. 26, 2010 for a week of unpaid furlough for the employees. Cost of living adjustments will also be suspended for two years starting in June 2011 and annual step increases will be suspended starting in Jan. 2011.
