WALL STREET JOURNAL: Las Vegas Hotel Workers Move Closer to Potential Strike

Unions for Las Vegas Strip workers have set a date for a citywide strike vote later this month that, if approved, could lead to more than 50,000 housekeepers, bartenders and other staff walking off the job.

Members of the Culinary and Bartenders Unions will cast ballots on Sept. 26. A majority vote would authorize a potential future strike. 

Among other issues, workers want lighter workloads and an increase in on-the-job security protection, the unions said. They are also bargaining for a wage increase. 

A majority of the workers are employed in the hotels, casinos, coffee shops and restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip or in downtown Las Vegas.
