LAS VEGAS SUN: Culinary members to picket Caesars, MGM properties amid negotiations

“We have announced these picket lines to send that message to the industry that they’re walking down the wrong path, and they’re going to have an opportunity to change that direction,” Pappageorge said. “But time is running out.”


“Workers come out before work or after work,” he said of how the picket lines will run. “And so, they’ll clock in and do their job like they always do — like they’ve been doing through this whole pandemic and through this incredible recovery, helping (make) these companies billions of dollars. But they’re going to come out in a show of force and to send a message to these companies what a strike is going to look like.”


“We’re not really seeing anything that’s sufficient to try to avert a strike,” said Pappageorge, who noted the importance of issues like daily room-cleaning for guest room attendants and rebuilding a workforce diminished by the pandemic. “And that’s unfortunate.”
