LVRJ: Union plans Strip picket lines, pressuring hotels to avoid strike

Thousands of hospitality workers are expected to picket in front of eight Strip resorts this week as Culinary Local 226 ramps up its pressure to negotiate a deal for a new five-year contract with hotel-casino employers.

Two-hour “informational picket lines” are expected to begin at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Thursday in front of Park MGM, Paris Las Vegas and The Linq Hotel. Picketers are then expected to expand to the sidewalks in front of Harrah’s, Flamingo, Horseshoe Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood Resort and New York-New York. 

The picket lines are not a work stoppage, and a strike deadline has not been set, union officials said Monday. Workers joining the picket lines are expected to join before or after their shifts. 

Culinary union officials asked the public to not cross any picket lines in solidarity with the workers.
