MGM Resorts may cut some bartender, cashier jobs in Las Vegas

hern said it is too early to say how many workers could be affected by the new technology it plans to deploy at its Strip properties. Culinary Local 226 spokeswoman Bethany Khan said there are about 2,000 bartenders at MGM properties, and the new union contract signed last year has greater protections for workers from technology disruption.

Under the new contract, MGM must notify the union six months before implementing any technology that could impact jobs. That suggests the technology will be launched no earlier than the end of August.

The contract also stipulates that MGM and the union will work together to help any affected employees by training them, finding them new jobs and offering other work-support services, Ahern and Khan said.
