MGM will require unvaccinated workers to pay for COVID testing

Culinary Local 226 said it is supportive of the company’s policy and encouraged people to get the vaccine. The union represents about 24,000 MGM workers in Las Vegas, including those at Aria, Bellagio, Excalibur, Luxor, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, New York-New York, Park MGM, Signature and Vdara.

“The CDC said previously that more than 97 percent of people who have been admitted to the hospital with COVID-19 have not been vaccinated. The Culinary Union urges Nevadans who are not yet vaccinated to get the vaccine — it is the best way to protect you, your family, our hospitality jobs, and our state’s industries,” union spokeswoman Bethany Khan said. “The Culinary union will remain vigilant to ensure workers are protected at work and urge hospitality employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine as they are safe, proven, and effective."
