The Clark County Education Association (CCEA), as the exclusive representative of all laid-off Clark County employees or employees in the school district, negotiated a comprehensive collective agreement (CBA) with the Clark County School District (CCSD). CCEA is the only exclusive bargaining partner for the 18,000 licensed professionals in the Clark County School District. CCEA negotiates and defends your collective agreement on your compensation, benefits and terms of employment, no other local union can negotiate for you or represent you with the Clark County School District. An appeal is defined as any dispute arising from an interpretation, application or alleged violation of the CBA. As the claim procedure is part of our contract with the District, it is a legally protected activity that protects bereavement from reprisals because a complaint has been filed. An employee of the school district covered by the CBA can file a complaint. The AECB provides assistance to all members in handling complaints. Any AECB member who feels they may have a complaint should call CCEA immediately. The first protection for a teacher is the CBA, which sets the conditions of employment. CCEA negotiates your CBA and tries to improve and impose the CBA. The main instrument of application is the appeal procedure. Remember that even fair people can be honestly divided on the importance of a contract or staff policy. For this reason, an appeal procedure is an integral part of the CBA.
A complaint is only an orderly procedure, with certain deadlines to be respected in resolving disputes between the employee and the employer. Our claims process ends with the final decision of an impartial arbitrator. According to the CBA, the arbitrator`s decision is final and binding. CCEA works diligently to apply the CBA language and to the correct application of the revised statutes and Nevada CSC guidelines and regulations for educators.
