A Mega-Deal Could Merge Eldorado Resorts with Caesars Entertainment for $17.3 Billion

PALMS — More than 1,000 members of the Culinary Union plan to picket outside the resort on Wednesday from 5 to 6 p.m. “Station Casinos always said it would respect the rights of its employees to organize and vote for a union,” says Geoconda Arguello-Kline, secretary-treasurer for the Culinary Union, in a press statement. “Yet after workers voted to unionize by 84 percent at Palms, the company tried to overturn the elections and are now illegally refusing to negotiate.” The National Labor Relations Board ruled recently that Station Casinos should cease and desist its refusal to bargain at the Palms. Workers at six Station Casinos’ Las Vegas properties are now unionized and fighting for a contract. They include Boulder Station (September 2016), Palace Station (March 2017), Green Valley Ranch (November 2017), Palms (April 2018), Sunset Station (June 2019), and Fiesta Rancho (June 2019).
