North Las Vegas Gives Unions Ultimatum

(North Las Vegas, NV) — North Las Vegas union workers have been given a choice by city leaders: Accept a settlement or face layoffs.

City manager Jeff Buchanan told employees they have until April 15th to accept a $7.7 million dollar pay raise offer, instead of continuing to persue $25 million in pay raises which were suspended when the city declared a “fiscal emergency” in 2012.

If unions don’t accept the offer, Buchanan warns of layoffs and service cuts to reduce the city’s projected $18 million deficit.

The “Review-Journal” reports two of the four city union leaders would prefer state receivership over the settlement.

If unions refuse the offer, the city is looking at plans for 10 to 20% across-the-board spending cuts.
