Culinary Union, Wynn, Gambling News

Culinary Local 226 and Bartenders Local 165 made a move last week to force Wynn Resorts to go back to union rules. In its response to Wynn issued Tuesday, the Culinary Union urged Wynn Resorts to agree with the union’s plan to ensure continuous healthcare for its staff until March 2021, in the steps of MGM Resorts International and Caesars Entertainment.

Twenty-three casino-resorts on the Strip, including MGM and Caesars’ properties and the Blackstone Group’s The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, agreed to set flexible work schedules to reduce job cuts in exchange for the additional healthcare benefits.

Union Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Argüello-Kline declared that Wynn has left nearly 1,000 workers without any health coverage since October 31, unlike other gaming companies on the Strip, and took advantage of the extension. “Culinary and Bartenders Union members on the Strip have their health care secured to March 1, 2021, and beyond,” Ms. Argüello-Kline added.
