US GAMBLING: Las Vegas Gaming Staff Will Start Their Strike on November 10

The casinos’ management and staff began negotiations in April. Unfortunately, they haven’t reached an agreement so far as the workers are asking for a five-year contract. The Culinary Union represents kitchen and laundry workers, porters, bartenders, food and beverage servers, and housekeepers.

The union has 60,000 members from Nevada. Paul Anthony, one of Bellagio’s food servers stated that they are determined to get a new contract since it will improve the livelihood of many families in Las Vegas. Reuters reported that Pappageorge stated that the casinos have greatly improved of late. However, their revenue has a significant difference.

The Secretary-Treasurer informed the Review-Journal that casino operators need to meet and discuss better working conditions and terms with their staff. He reiterated that if the management fail to consider workers’ pleas, the union will request players to visit other states’ casinos and spend money there instead of in Vegas. Pappageorge added that they have a big network countrywide that they can use to communicate with other casinos’ employees.
