NEWS 3: TODAY: Expect delays on Strip as Culinary Union plans rally, 'civil disobedience' arrests

At 6 p.m., about 75 hospitality workers will be arrested in what they're labeling an act of "civil disobedience," where protestors will take multiple lanes of Las Vegas Boulevard in front of the Bellagio and Paris. Lanes will reopen at 8 p.m.

"We have a history and tradition here in Las Vegas of civil disobedience," said Ted Pappageorge, secretary-treasurer and chief negotiator for the union during a Monday press call. "That means when you believe that there's something unjust going on, that you will send a message and take an arrest in a peaceful, nonviolent action. To send a message that we're disciplined, we're organized, and we're strong, and we're ready to fight."
