LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL: Union sets strike vote date for Las Vegas hospitality workers

Hospitality workers and the resort industry in Las Vegas have until late September to finish contract negotiations or else their union will hold a strike vote, Culinary Local 226 announced Thursday.

The union said it will hold a strike vote on Sept. 26 at Thomas and Mack Center for more than 53,000 hospitality workers at Strip and Downtown Las Vegas properties. If a majority of the workers vote yes, the negotiating committee for Culinary and the associated Bartenders Local 165 will be authorized to call for a strike, according to a Thursday news release. 

The union said it hasn’t set a strike deadline and continues good faith negotiations with the gaming companies. There have been multiple rounds of negotiations with the top three employers on the Strip — MGM Resorts International, Caesars Entertainment and Wynn Resorts — but still have not reached tentative agreement for a new five-year contract. Properties have been operating under extensions since the last city-wide contract ended on June 1.
