Unions sue three Nevada casino properties, claiming dangerous working conditions

The lawsuit filed Monday by the Culinary Workers Local 226 and Bartenders Union Local 165 against Harrah’s Las Vegas and the Bellagio and Signature Condominiums claims the companies have not sufficiently protected workers and their families from the spread of COVID-19 and that rules and procedures for responding to workers who contract COVID-19 have been inadequate.

Harrah’s is owned by Caesars Entertainment Corp, and the Bellagio and Signature Condominiums are subsidiaries of MGM Resorts International.

The lawsuit alleges the companies failed to immediately inform employees about co-workers who tested positive, and only “encouraged” guests to wear face masks while in public areas until June 24, when the Nevada governor ordered guests to wear masks.
