Local Union 159 Updates

Posted June 16, 2023

Thank you to everyone who came out to vote on our wage allocation!  Members of LU159 voted to have more money allocated to the vacation.  This new allocation will not take effect until July 1, 2023. 

In addition to the Master Agreement Allocation Vote, we also had 10 different allocations for all of the casino maintenance agreements.  All these allocations will take effect July 1, 2023 as well. 

Also, please be aware that the July Monthly Membership Meeting has been canceled due to the July 4 Holiday.  We will see you all again on Aug 1, 2023, at 5pm.  

In other news, two of DC16 staff have been testifying in the NV Legislature on Assembly Bill 210.  AB210 adds penalties to a contractor who willfully are not paying the correct prevailing wage.  Nevada now has the ability to to assess double penalties on contractors for not paying the correct prevailing wage. It is very exciting to announce that this law has been passed and signed into law by Governor Lombardo!  Organizer Cristian Cespedes and Business Rep Savannah Palmira shared their personal experiences and success stories of a case they worked on to bring justice to workers of wage theft.
