Labor Relations Unit (LRU)
The Labor Relations Unit is responsible for providing expert consultation to employees, employee representatives, agency representatives and agency management in the area of collective bargaining and contract application.
The goal of the Labor Relations Unit is to promote the development and growth of collaborative labor-management relationships 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
The LRU team will be reaching out to Department/Division HR and Leadership teams over the next couple of weeks to set up time to go over each CBA and to answer any questions. Please feel free to contact the LRU team in the meantime to ask any questions you may have.
The State of Nevada will be doing business differently as a collective bargaining entity. In order to pro-actively work with statewide Department leadership on these changes, DHRM's Labor Relations Unit is hosting a series of five (5), 4-hour classes via Microsoft Teams, focused on Leadership in a Collective Bargaining Environment.
The classes are titled Leadership in a Collective Bargaining Environment:

Collective Bargaining Units (CBU)

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 units are fluid and may change during the collective bargaining process. If you have questions about a certain job title or CBU, please contact the DHRM LRUTeam.
