AB224 hearing a great success

09 Mar 2023 2:06 PM | Kent Ervin (Administrator)

Today was a great hearing for AB224, our bill to secure collective bargaining rights for NSHE professionals!  Thanks so much to our members who testified or submitted written comments, to the AAUP and AFT for providing great expert testimony, and to our many labor partners including the Nevada AFL-CIO who lined up in support!

AFT legal analysis of the bill

NFA fact sheet

The support was overwhelming and the bill was very well received.  Just one hiccup--more than six months after we provided NSHE with the bill language and after multiple outreach attempts to them with no response, late yesterday NSHE submitted a claim that the bill is unconstitutional. That position was, however, eviscerated at the hearing by Kevin Powers, a senior attorney for the Legislative Counsel Bureau.  Listen to the hearing here. Hearing starts at 9:52:30, Kevin Powers at 10:08:58.

We now expect the bill to move forward through the legislative process.
