Culinary announced another organizing effort at Allegiant Stadium

Ahead of Super Bowl LVIII, Culinary Workers Local 226 announced an effort for Allegiant Stadium to organize some 1,500 nonunion workers that handle concessions at the venue. The union announced the effort in conjunction with the NFL Players Association.

The union organized roughly 800 workers at Allegiant after the venue first opened. Nonunion workers make roughly $13 an hour. As a comparison, unionized cashiers at the Las Vegas Convention Center earn $23.54 per hour.  

Culinary leaders said the union sent letters to 27 Allegiant Stadium service providers demanding card check neutrality agreements. The union also released a Jan. 25 letter from Las Vegas Raiders President Sandra Douglass Morgan who said the team would “always respect the legal right of employees to select a bargaining representative of their choosing” and “will not do anything to impede their right to do so if they are so inclined.”
