North Vegas, Police Supes Reveal Pending Agreement
NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — The North Las Vegas police supervisors union is revealing terms of a tentative agreement it reached with the city that could save $1.5 million, although it’s unclear whether the concessions are enough to keep two city-run recreation centers open.
Details came Wednesday after both parties signed the agreement Tuesday following weeks of negotiations.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/nvyOQZ) the 57-member union of sergeants and lieutenants is giving up a 4.25 percent cost of living increase for the rest of the fiscal year, among other concessions.
Union members are expected to vote on the contract this week before city councilmembers consider it Monday.
The council last week approved closing two recreation centers if they can’t save money elsewhere.
The city still has no agreement with its 360-member Police Officers Association.
