REUTERS: Caesars averts strike in deal with Las Vegas unions

Unions representing hospitality workers in Las Vegas said they reached a "historic" tentative deal with Caesars Entertainment for a new contract for 10,000 employees on Wednesday, two days before a strike threatened to shut down the Strip.

The negotiations come as unions across industries press employers for better pay and benefits, buoyed by a shortage of workers. Casino resort operators have been earning record profits from a steady post-pandemic recovery in Las Vegas tourism.


The Las Vegas unions, considered among the most powerful in the United States, said it has also reduced the workload for housekeepers for the first time in 30 years and has negotiated language to be able to campaign and support non-union workers on the strip.

"As a package, we think this is the best contract we've ever had," Pappageorge told reporters on a call.
