    October 20, 2022 // Clark County Education Association, one of the largest teachers union locals in the nation, seceded from both the NEA and its state affiliate, the Nevada State Education Association. This was a major blow to NEA and NSEA, since the Las Vegas-based union comprised more than half of the state’s entire teachers union membership. But they were quick to respond, and a week after the disaffiliation vote, NEA and NSEA formed a competing local union, NEA Southern Nevada. They instituted a campaign to poach CCEA members. The state union’s executive director said, “we decided to advise the members of their rights to withdraw from a union if they so choose.” Their public relations efforts included a live stream of a cardboard box.
