Union still in negotiations with independent Las Vegas casino resorts

Culinary Workers Union Local 226 has reached tentative agreements with both Caesars Entertainment and MGM Resorts International. But several independent casino resorts are still in limbo right now. So how are negotiations going -- and is a strike still possible?

The Culinary Union says it is making progress in their fight for casino resort employees. But for people like single mother Elvia Espinoza, everything is still up in the air. Espinoza is a guest room attendant at Westgate, one of five independent properties on the Strip still in contract negotiations, according to the union. What is at stake? The union says better wages, job security, and workplace safety.
