The Clinic will provide primary care services for no cost (deductible or co-pay) to the fund participants as well as 60-70 prescriptions at no cost that can be filled at the on-site pharmacy. Both clinics have a full MD on staff as well as several physician assistants and medical assistants. The Clinic will function as a primary care provider, not an urgent care, and set appointments for you to see the doctor.

Local 14 has been very busy at the negotiation table. We are excited to announce that our members at Airgas have unanimously approved their first CBA! We were in negotiations with the company for a year and a half and appreciate the assistance and input from their shop steward, Mike Smith, in arriving at this agreement. This agreement provides our members with much needed workplace protections, seniority privileges, pay increases and significantly better health insurance and a greatly reduced out of pocket cost to our members. We currently are in contract negotiations with the City of North Las Vegas, the City of Mesquite, the Town of Caliente, Lincoln County and Reyes-Coke. Please check your bulletin boards and/or the app for any announcement of a ratification meeting if you are in these bargaining units. We are also preparing for negotiations in the next couple months for US Foods, Bakemark, Americold and Angelica. Check your bulletin board for dates of the CBA proposal and CBA proposal review meetings.
Local 14 extends our heartfelt sympathy to the family of Terry Bringham a 35-year member and employee at Pepsi who passed away on April 24th. He will be missed by all and remembered for his sense of humor.
