Culinary lawsuit spells bad news for gaming companies trying to put on a happy face

The lawsuit singles out the Signature at the MGM Grand, Sadelle’s Café at Bellagio, and Guy Fieri Las Vegas at Harrah’s, alleging the operators “adopted unreasonable rules and procedures for addressing the spread of COVID-19.” The businesses failed to shut down work areas after learning of positive COVID-19 cases, failed to conduct adequate contact tracing, failed to immediately inform employees of positive test findings, and provided workers with false information.

At a teleconference this week, Culinary Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Arguello-Kline said the lawsuit seeking injunctive relief was just the beginning of the union’s effort to protect its workers.

“The Culinary Union will continue to collect worker statements and evidence regarding unsafe working conditions throughout the Las Vegas Strip and in downtown Las Vegas, and we will support the courageous workers who have come forward to share their experiences,” she said.
