KTNV: Culinary Union, casinos still at stalemate over current contract negotiations

On Friday, leaders met with Caesars Entertainment. Secretary-Treasurer Ted Pappageorge said they presented their proposals to Caesars all morning. We caught up with Culinary Union leaders virtually during an afternoon break.

"The company is considering our proposal. They will come back with their own proposals. We are hoping to make movement," Pappageorge said. "We got some movement with MGM. It is not going to be enough to avoid a strike."

Pappageorge said they're asking for a wage increase, job security, and more notice to employees of a significant job change impacted by technology like artificial intelligence and robots. He added that MGM made improvements to their offer when it comes to pay but not enough yet.
