NEA beats back Teamsters raid

It appears 18,000 public school teachers in Clark County (NV) will not become Teamsters - yet.

On Thursday, leaders from Teamsters Local 14 announced they didn't get enough signatures to formally challenge the current teachers union, The Clark County Education Association.

The Teamsters kicked of their campaign back in June. They needed to turn in at least 9,000 pledge cards to the state labor board by Friday.

A spokesperson for Teamsters says they fell short by a sizable amount, but won't rule out another attempt.
