NV CURRENT: Culinary gives resorts until Nov. 10 to avert ‘largest hospitality workers strike in history’

Culinary Workers Local 226 officials said resorts have until next Friday to put forward a contract that meets wage demands, secures worker protections against automation replacing jobs, and mandates daily room cleanings or around 35,000 union workers will commence a strike. 

After months of negotiating with MGM Resorts, Caesars, Resorts World and Wynn, Culinary Union Secretary-Treasurer Ted Pappageorge announced on Thursday that the union has officially set a deadline for Nov. 10 at 5 a.m. One of MGM’s properties, the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, would be exempt from a strike since MGM only acquired it last year the contract is not up for renewal.

“It will be the largest hospitality worker strike in the history of the U.S.” Pappageorge said. “Our goal is to get a great contract. We intend to do everything we can to do that. The message is very clear that workers are prepared and united.”
