Lawsuit Update

Statement from NSEA President Brian Rippet on the Nevada Supreme Court Opinion regarding the NSEA/CCEA lawsuit.
Published: 03/04/2021

As you may know, the Nevada Supreme Court issued an opinion last week regarding the lawsuit between the National Education Association (NEA) / Nevada State Education Association (NSEA) and its former affiliate in Clark County. 

While we disagree with the Court’s opinion, as the largest educator’s union in Nevada, nothing will deter us from continuing to build a strong statewide organization focused on representing over 22,000 educators (31 locals) in all 17 counties in Nevada. 

Since 1899, the Nevada State Education Association has been the voice of Nevada educators. Along with our 3 million sisters and brothers throughout the country who are NEA members, we are as diverse as the students we represent, but united in our purpose: championing justice and excellence in public education.

Our vision and mission have not changed. NSEA will continue to advocate for and empower members in all 17 counties, from Elko to North Las Vegas, from Reno to Pahrump, and Hawthorne to Ely by providing a united, political, and professional voice in order to ensure the right to quality public education.

Should you have any questions, please contact your UniServ Directors, NSEA governance, or NSEA staff who remain available to you as always.
