THE MESSENGER: Las Vegas Strip Workers Threaten Strike Against Caesars, MGM and Wynn Casinos

Roughly 35,000 hospitality workers in Las Vegas could go on strike against 18 casino resorts on the Strip if they do not have a new five-year labor contract by Nov. 10.

The Culinary and Bartenders Unions have been negotiating with MGM Resorts International, Caesars Entertainment Corporation and Wynn Resorts for seven months over a new labor contract. Workers at those companies' resorts have been working under expired union contracts since Sept. 15 and voted overwhelmingly in favor of authorizing a strike on Sept. 26.

The workers want better pay, protection from technological advancements that could replace their jobs, less demanding housekeeping quotas and provisions to make their workplace safer.
