AP / ABC NEWS: Dozens of union workers arrested on Las Vegas Strip for blocking traffic as thousands rally

As the protest began, Kimberly Dopler, a cocktail server at Wynn Las Vegas since it opened in 2005, said she planned to halt traffic.

“I’m hoping that the companies will listen to us and realize that we’re not joking. We’re ready to walk out,” she said.


Leslie Lilla, a cocktail server at the Bellagio for 25 years, said earlier this month that union members have been preparing for a possible strike and are ready and willing to walk off the job.

“We’re ready to show our company by our feet, and that means walking ourselves right out of the building,” she said. “So we’ve been saving and we’ve been putting money into our accounts.”
