After union officials expressed disbelief at a county report finding the average wage increases for thousands of union members since 2008 had totaled 12.5 percent, county officials Friday had to agree.
A column a few weeks ago about $1.9 million in interest found in a Clark County account prompted some fund-searching by the largest county employee union.
The Service Employees International Union, representing about 6,500 county workers, dug into a list of about 590 funds to see if other county accounts have money just sitting there collecting interest. (The $1.9 million was interest accrued over seven years from a capital improvement bond that went unspent.)
