Teachers Union Declares Impasse in Contract Talks

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - The Clark County Education Association says it has reached an impasse in its contract negotiations with the Clark County School District.

The CCEA, which represents 18,000 public school teachers, says it has failed to reach consensus after a fourth negotiating session.

The union says the school district is asking for $37 million in concessions. Union leaders claim the district is proposing a salary freeze, higher contributions by teachers into the Public Employees Retirement System, and replacement of two self-funded teacher health trust funds with trusts provided by a for-profit carrier.

CCEA President Ruben Murillo says the parties will now prepare for arbitration.

Efforts to reach the Clark County School District for comment were unsuccessful.
