Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, a Republican, last week signed into law a wide-ranging collective bargaining overhaul that prohibits school administrators who make more than $120,000 a year from joining a collective bargaining unit. It also makes it easier for superintendents to fire or transfer school principals during their first few years of employment.

The measure requires administrators who aren't principals but are in unions to reapply for their jobs every five years.

It also doubles the number of negotiation sessions required between a teachers' union and employer before calling in an independent arbitrator to reach an agreement.
