    Default Nevada Governor signed into law bills implementing progressive priorities

    A move in the right direction....

    Sisolak signs marquee bills: Minimum wage hike, paid sick leave, state worker collective bargaining, school funds

    Fulfilling some of his major campaign promises, Gov. Steve Sisolak has signed into law bills implementing progressive priorities including a minimum wage hike, mandatory paid sick leave and collective bargaining for state employees.

    At a signing ceremony on Wednesday afternoon, Sisolak was flanked by green-shirted AFSCME union members who whooped and cheered as he gave his approval to the unionization bill — a scene that underscored the shift in direction now that a Democrat is governor for the first time in two decades.

    He also signed a payroll tax rate extension bill that directs money to teacher raises but could face a legal challenge, and a measure that allows county commissions to raise their sales tax to fund education, services for the homeless or union-affiliated hospitality workforce programs.

    Pro-Worker Labor Bill Becomes Law in Nevada

    The Teamsters are hailing progress for workers after passage of a new pro-worker law in Nevada that grants its 20,000 state employees the right to collectively bargain.

    SB 135, signed by Gov. Steve Sisolak (D) on Wednesday, marks the most significant expansion of collective bargaining rights for state workers anywhere nationally in the last 16 years. These Nevada workers will now be granted the freedom to join together and stand up for better pay and working conditions on the job through negotiating with their employer.

    “This is a great win for working people in Nevada,” said Jason Rabinowitz, Director of the Teamsters Public Services Division. “When workers have the freedom to join together in a union, we create good jobs in our communities and a stronger, fairer economy for all.”

    “It is great for the state of Nevada. It is good for all of us,” said Larry Griffith, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 14 in Las Vegas. “We’ve been working on this a long time. Gov. Sisolak kept his word.”
