LAS VEGAS SUN: Culinary reports Las Vegas Strip resorts making ‘some movement,’ but strike still a possibility

Preparations are already underway for signs, storage and even portable restrooms for picket stations at more than a dozen properties, he said.

Those preparations are for what may be the “largest strike in history here in Las Vegas,” he said.

“We are preparing,” Pappageorge said. “And I would say that we’re also in good spirits. I think the workers are strong.”

Margaret Shellcross, a food server at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, who has worked at the resort since 2008, echoed the sentiment that workers deserved a “record contract” considering record visitation to the resorts after the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I am fighting because I believe that one job really should be enough,” she said Monday. “I’m fighting for a fair wage, fighting for my health care, my pension — I’m fighting for everybody’s families. … I truly believe that we should have a fair contract here.”
