BUILDING POWER IN PLACE Las Vegas: Confronting Corporate Mirages, Visioning and Winning from the Ground Up

Culinary Union’s relentless power against Station Casinos stems from a long history of organizing led by workers themselves, many of them Black and Latinx women working as attendants and in service positions. Today, the union reflects the workforce in hospitality. The average Culinary Union member is a 44-year-old Latina who is a guest room attendant, and this is alive and present across the members, leadership and organizing in the union – with women representing 55% of the members, Latinx workers 54%, Asian workers, 15% and Black workers 12%. In total, the Culinary Union represents more than 60,000 workers in Las Vegas and Reno, nearly half of whom are immigrants.
