'It was bound to happen': Machines are coming to the Vegas Strip — and they may take jobs

In 2018, the Culinary union negotiated terms of a collective bargaining agreement that includes protections from job displacement due to automation.

Under this agreement, MGM and other gaming companies must notify the union six months before new technology enters the workforce to allow employees to learn new skills for new positions should machines threaten their jobs.

MGM officials contend they could not tell the USA Today Network how many automated systems are coming to Las Vegas properties – or how many jobs could be lost. They instead leaned against ongoing negotiations with the Culinary union.
