Culinary Union Initiates Petition to Cap Rent Increases in North Las Vegas

Culinary, which represents 60,000 gaming industry workers in Las Vegas and Reno, says rents in North Las Vegas surged 25% in 2021. The ongoing spike in monthly costs are pushing many longtime residents out, so claim union officials.

On top of 8.5% inflation in gas and groceries, rising rents are a blow to working families who are still recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Ted Pappageorge, secretary-treasurer for the Culinary Union. “Neighborhood stability is good for everyone: longtime residents, senior citizens, first-time homebuyers, parents with children, and local neighborhood businesses.”

In hopes of implementing a rent increase cap, the Culinary Union has begun an initiative that would prevent further surges exceeding the cost of living, as measured by the Consumer Price Index. Rents would be limited to a maximum increase of 5% a year.
