Caesars Palace utility porter, 51, dies after contracting COVID-19 while working at the casino after it reopened

The Culinary Workers Union, a 60,000-member strong organization that represents employees at casinos, hotels, and restaurants in Las Vegas and Reno, said that it plans to file a lawsuit on Monday against ‘major Las Vegas Strip casino companies.’

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the union will allege in its court filing that local casinos have failed to adequately protect workers from the coronavirus.

The union told the Review-Journal that ‘the current rules and procedures in place for responding to workers contracting COVID-19 have been wholly and dangerously inadequate.’

Union officials plan to hold a virtual news conference on Monday, where they are expected to tell the public which companies it plans to sue.
