Casino Culinary Union Takes Credit for Nevada Biden Votes

Geoconda Arguello-Kline, secretary-treasurer of the 60,000-member Culinary Workers Union, Local 226, added that “Here in Las Vegas, we’ve been suffering incredible, tremendous impact with the COVID-19.” She noted that 55 union members or their close relatives died from the pandemic.

Also, more than half of the Culinary Union members currently are out of work because of coronavirus, she added. “We cannot take four more years of Donald Trump,” Arguello-Kline said.

When asked by what impact the 2020 election will have on Las Vegas’ gaming sector and its workers, Arguello-Kline avoided specifics. “The election is the most important thing right now,” Arguello-Kline responded.

The Culinary Union has been in a continuing battle with Station Casinos and other gaming companies over recognition of the union.
