LAS VEGAS — Amidst the excitement of Super Bowl week in Las Vegas, the Culinary Workers Union has made progress in negotiations with several hotel-casinos. A tentative agreement has been reached with Binion’s, Four Queens, Fremont, and Main Street, securing the rights of approximately 1,000 workers. However, discussions with the Golden Nugget, Downtown Grand, and Virgin Las Vegas are still ongoing.
Previously, the Las Vegas Strip’s leading employers, namely MGM Resorts International, Caesar Entertainment, and Wynn Resorts, successfully reached agreements with the union, ensuring the employment stability of 40,000 members and preventing a significant strike.
Now focusing on similar contract terms for workers at other hotel-casinos in Las Vegas, the union has settled negotiations with numerous properties since early January. Recent developments, however, have led to a potential strike if tentative contracts are not finalized by 5 a.m. Monday. This strike would primarily affect downtown casino workers at properties that have not yet reached agreements.
Notably, as Las Vegas prepares to welcome approximately 330,000 visitors for the NFL’s championship game, the Culinary Union remains vigilant in its efforts to secure fair contracts for its 60,000 members statewide.
