Las Vegas Union Representing 50,000 Resort Workers Threatens Strike, Walkout Would Cripple City

The Culinary Union, a branch of the nationwide Unite Here labor organization, will hold a vote May 22 at the Thomas & Mack Center of the University of Nevada Las Vegas where union members will decide whether to authorize a strike. Should a majority support a protest, union leaders will possess the power to initiate a walkout any time after contracts expire on June 1, 2018.

“On May 22, thousands of union members will show casino employers that workers are going to fight for security and that they are not going to be left behind as companies are making record profits and getting windfall tax breaks,” Culinary Union Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Argüello-Kline said in a release.
