THE NV INDEPENDENT: Did Culinary Union members go to jail for protesting over Vegas resort contracts?

Ted Pappageorge, secretary-treasurer of Culinary Workers Union Local 226, clarified during a press conference last week in Las Vegas that members who had volunteered to be arrested during a planned civil disobedience demonstration last Wednesday were detained and cited but not taken to jail.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement that officers responded to a planned protest on the Las Vegas Strip where thousands of Culinary workers gathered to send a message to the industry’s largest employers as parties seek to settle on the terms of a new five-year contract.
