Casino Must Bargain After Shady Benefits Boost, Judge Says

A Nevada federal judge issued a rare bargaining order Tuesday against a Las Vegas casino that rolled out generous new benefits days before a union election in what the judge deemed a veiled effort to thwart an organizing drive.

U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro partially granted the National Labor Relations Board's petition for an injunction rectifying labor law violations NP Red Rock allegedly committed in the lead-up to the December 2019 election, which the Local Joint Executive Board of Las Vegas lost despite securing majority support.

Judge Navarro said the benefits rollout was a "hallmark violation" justifying a bargaining order under the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in NLRB v. Gissel Packing Co. , which set the legal test for leveling the board's stiffest remedy.
