The Clark County School District won its arbitration case with the teachers union, taking back raises awarded to teachers for the current school year when the two sides could not agree on a new contract.
When the district and the union declared an impasse in the 2011-12 school year, an arbitrator ruled in favor of the union, allowing for teachers to receive step raises to which they were entitled by their previous contract. Teachers then received step raises for both 2011-12 and 2012-13.
The parties both declared an impasse again this year. If the district and union cannot agree on a contract, state law provides for the terms of the last contract to remain in effect.
