“ESEA and Teamsters have been working hard for months to ensure that the District invested in education support professionals,” said Jan Giles, President of Education Support Employees Association. “The partnership between ESEA and Teamsters 14 made these $2,000 retention bonuses happen; we have demanded respect and our combined union power is helping to raise the standards for working families in Nevada.”
“The hard work and political power of ESEA and Teamsters 14 is what is pushing the District in the right direction on a host of issues,” said Fred Horvath, Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters 14. “We fought hard to include every member of the bargaining unit. We are fresh off the win of our historic new contract, and we are headed into the new year with the goal to negotiate retention bonuses for all members of the contract.”
Whether at the local or state level, the joint efforts of ESEA and Teamsters 14 have demonstrated the strength and power of the collective. Unions are leading the way in the use of newly available monies in the school district. Together, we are the biggest and loudest advocates for our schools, our students, and ourselves. ESEA and Teamsters 14 will continue to ensure that education support professionals in the Clark County School District, politically and at the bargaining table, come out of this pandemic stronger and even more united.
