Union workers for Republic Services in the Las Vegas area (formerly Silver State Disposal) have rejected a new contract setting the stage for a showdown on June 9th when the current contract expires. The union which is 1,200 members strong has taken issue with Republic's attempt to curb absenteeism. Despite offering a 37% increase in wages and benefits, the new contract would reduce so-called allowable "no-call, no-show" days from 10 to 3 days per year. "It is not unusual for an initial contract proposal to go through more than one round of negotiations," according to Republic Services President Bob Coyle. "We believe that the two sides are probably not that far apart from reaching an agreement that the rank and file will support," Coyle said in a company statement.
