Labor Relations Unit (LRU)
The Labor Relations Unit (LRU) is responsible for providing
expert consultation to State of Nevada public sector employees, State employee
representatives, State of Nevada agency representatives, and State agency
management in the area of collective bargaining and contract application.
The goal of the LRU is to promote the development and growth
of collaborative labor-management relationships within the State and to provide
accurate and comprehensive guidance that will empower agency management to make
informed decisions as labor challenges arise.
The LRU provides expert advice, technical guidance, training, and policy support to the agencies concerning labor-management and labor relations matters arising within the collective bargaining units.
The primary objective of the LRU is to maintain a positive labor-management relationship, and to successfully negotiate labor agreements while applying an appropriate interpretation of the agreements.
Collective Bargaining Units (BU)
State of Nevada job titles have been broken into 11 separate collective bargaining units (BU). A bargaining unit is composed of positions/titles of similar interests and are recognized by both the State and a Union who has been designated as an exclusive representative to negotiate matters involving employment issues. These 11 bargaining units may evolve over time to better represent state positions and shared communities of interest. If you have questions about a certain job title or BU, please contact the Labor Relations team.
