FOX 5: Las Vegas culinary, bartenders unions announce strike vote Sep. 26

Members of the Culinary and Bartenders Unions have scheduled a vote to strike on Sept. 26.

Collectivly the unions have more than 53,000 hospitality workers with contracts up for negotiation this year. The vote will be held at the Thomas & Mack Center at the University of Nevada - Las Vegas campus.

The votes will take place over two sessions - morning and evening. The public is advised by the unions to avoid the Strip and Tropicana Avenue near the center and Harry Reid International Airport - as thousands of shift workers are expected to attend one of the two sessions to cast their votes.

If a majority of workers between both sessions vote yes, then the Culinary and Bartenders Unions negotiating committee will be authorized to call for a strike. The Culinary Union has not yet set a strike deadline and continues negotiating in good faith with all gaming companies, they said.
