THE STREET: Las Vegas Strip labor situation turns ugly as strike looms

The union has been very clear that it not only has permission to strike, it's ready to do so.

“If these gaming companies don’t come to an agreement, the workers have spoken and we will be ready to do whatever it takes — up to and including a strike. Workers brought every single one of these companies through the pandemic and into a great recovery, and workers deserve a fair share. Companies are doing extremely well and we are demanding that workers aren’t left behind,” Culinary Union Secretary-Treasurer Ted Pappageorge said in a media statement.

The union has not called for a strike yet — it's more likely to do so in November, closer to the Formula 1 (F1) race which should bring record crowds to the city. It did, however, hold a protest Oct. 25 where thousands of workers closed down a stretch of the Las Vegas Strip.

"Protestors stopped rush-hour vehicles in both directions on the famous thoroughfare for about a half-hour near the Paris Las Vegas and Bellagio casinos," reported.
