Dear CSN Family,
The Labor Day holiday on Monday will honor and recognize the American Labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the American way of life.
This Labor Day is of special significance to CSN because we have just wrapped up negotiations for a second collective bargaining agreement with the Nevada Faculty Alliance. I encourage us to reflect on the words of Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers. “For me, the labor movement and public education are linked as the essential building blocks to a strong middle class and a path to the American Dream.”
As I mentioned at convocation, our work is not always easy, but it is always rewarding when our students succeed. Please accept my sincere appreciation for the hard work you do, day in and day out. Your individual commitments to CSN students and to each other make CSN the beacon of hope and Segway to the Middle Class and the American Dream for so many in our diverse communities.
Thank you for your continued hard work and for making a difference.
God Bless, stay safe, and enjoy your Labor Day holiday
