NV INDEPENDENT: Culinary sets resort industry strike vote for the end of September if contract talks stall

The leadership of the unions representing 53,000 Strip and downtown resort employees have called for a strike vote by the end of the month if ongoing contract talks don’t improve.

In a statement Thursday, the leadership of Culinary Workers Local 226 and Bartenders Local 165 said multiple rounds of negotiations with gaming industry leaders over a new 5-year collective bargaining agreement have not produced a new contract.

Since April, the unions have been in talks with MGM Resorts International, Caesars Entertainment and Wynn Resorts, the Strip’s three largest employers which cover 38,000 non-gaming workers.
