When a convict escaped from the Southern Desert Correctional Facility in September, state officials suspected that staffing shortages may have played a role.
Finding and maintaining prison officers has been a huge difficulty, according to organizations that represent officers in the state.
Nevada’s AFSCME union, which represents state workers in fields such as jails, mental health services, and maintenance, said Monday that Governor Steve Sisolak has proposed a measure that would authorize funding for a 3% salary raise negotiated by AFSCME.
“As the union for Nevada state employees, AFSCME is proud to have delivered a strong first contract, and the only union to deliver two 3% wage increases for state workers,” President of AFSCME Local 4041 Harry Schiffman said.
