The Culinary Union has contracts with more than 45 different employers. Most have language that is very similar, but there can be differences. Call the Union at
702-385-2131 to speak to your organizer or a grievance specialist for answers to specific questions or to ask questions about the contract with your employer.
Only a very few contracts have Room Seniority.
Room Seniority means that employees that work in a particular room (usually a restaurant and generally front-of the-house workers) have their own seniority system within their room only. House and classification seniority and in some instances layoff and recall provisions apply only to workers in that particular room. (Simply put, it’s as if that room is a separate island within the property.)
