LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Some teachers at Nevada's largest school have voted to unionize.
The College of Southern Nevada said Monday that the recent election results showed the required numbers of votes were cast.
The American Association of University Professors said the majority of the community college's 523 tenured and tenured-track faculty member chose to unionize.
Union officials and the school said they were ready to start the collective bargaining process for a contract.
The contract would cover tenured and tenured-track faculty members but not the school's 900 "contingent faculty" who are appointed per term.
The union said it is working to change state law to allow them to be a part of the union.
