LVRJ: Culinary plans new picket, ‘civil disobedience’ actions this week

Hospitality workers will once again rally on the Strip this week — including 75 union members who will participate in “civil disobedience” — as Culinary Local 226 continues to pressure hotel employers to negotiate a deal for a new five-year contract.

A four-hour picket and traffic disruption will occur in front of the Bellagio and Paris Las Vegas on Wednesday. Single-lane closures will begin at 4 p.m., with picketers rallying in front of both resorts beginning at 5 p.m.


At 6 p.m., about 75 hospitality workers are expected to be arrested in a “non-violent protest action” where they take over multiple lanes of traffic on Las Vegas Boulevard.
