What is the LVCEA?
The Las Vegas City Employees' Association is the recognized bargaining unit for Classified City Employees. The LVCEA is an independent Labor Organization run and operated by, and for, the Classified City Employees.
What advantages are there for the LVCEA by not being part of a national labor organization?
The LVCEA can better tailor its programs and services for its members because it is 100% controlled by its members instead of being controlled by a national organization. Moreover, you can rest assured that all of your dues will go towards LVCEA programs and activities, thus ensuring that your dues will directly benefit you. Furthermore, there is a local office open four days per week with trained staff and legal counsel to assist you with any workplace problems and issues.
