Vegas Teachers Union Bleeds Membership

Membership for the local teachers union has dropped by 800 people, reducing its numbers to 62 percent of Clark County public school teachers.

At least 50 percent of teachers must be members for the union to negotiate on their behalf with the Clark County School District.

Clark County Education Association membership has been declining for years, from more than 13,000 teachers in 2007 to 10,590 now, according to conservative think tank Nevada Policy Research Institute, which obtained the numbers from the school district.
