Culinary workers vote 99 percent for Caesars deal; MGM, Wynn vote next

MGM Resorts workers will vote Tuesday and Wynn Resorts workers will vote Wednesday.

Speaking to reporters via Zoom on Monday, Culinary Secretary-Treasurer Ted Pappageorge said the significant wage increases, guaranteed lower workloads, protections from job-replacing technology and career support are “historic” additions to the workers’ contracts.

“These are historic things that we’ve never achieved in the last 30 years of negotiations, so we’re very proud of that,” Pappageorge said.

Culinary officials said every worker will get a 10 percent wage increase in the first year of the contract, retroactive to June 1, with a 32-percent increase over the total life of the contract. The average worker earns about $26 an hour, including benefits. That figure is expected to reach $3[7] by the end of the five years.
