LAS VEGAS – Members of AFSCME Local 4041 overwhelmingly voted earlier this month to ratify their new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with the state of Nevada.

This is the second contract for Local 4041 members after AFSCME members won collective bargaining rights for Nevada state employees in 2019.

Workers included in this contract include maintenance and custodial workers, health care workers, mental health workers, and other professionals in the health care field.

Next, the Board of Examiners must approve the contract on behalf of the state, and the state legislature must fund its economic provisions.
