CNN: 35,000 workers across 18 casinos will strike on Nov 10 if deal isn’t reached

The Culinary Workers Union Local 226 and Bartenders Union Local 165 will strike on November 10 at 5 am PT if a contract is not agreed by then, they said in a news release Thursday.

Thirty-five thousand workers would strike across 18 casino resorts on the Las Vegas Strip if a five-year contract is not reached, the release said.

“A month ago, workers voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike and we have continued negotiating in good faith, but unfortunately companies haven’t made enough movement in negotiations,” Ted Pappageorge, secretary-treasurer for the Culinary Union, said in a statement. “Their current proposal on the table is historic, but it’s not enough and workers deserve to have record contracts - especially after these giant corporations are enjoying their record profits.”
