Casino workers' union joins rally for collective bargaining

Nevada’s powerful casino workers’ union rallied Tuesday in support of a bill slowly moving through the Legislature that would give state employees the right to bargain collectively.

Dozens of members of Culinary Workers Union Local 226 joined state workers and members of a public employees union to warn lawmakers and the governor that they consider it the most important labor legislation this year and will be closely watching what happens with less than three weeks left in the session.

D. Taylor, a former culinary union president and current president of the union’s national affiliate Unite Here, said at the rally in Las Vegas that union members worked hard to elect Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak and a Democratically controlled Legislature where leaders all say they support collective bargaining.
