Westgate, Culinary union at odds over unsettled contract

Culinary union pickets took to the streets in 111-degree heat to protest the failure to reach agreement in contract negotiations for new five-year collective bargaining deals at two Las Vegas resorts.

Executives with the off-Strip Westgate say they were “dismayed” that their property was the target of a demonstration by hundreds of union pickets Friday afternoon. Earlier in the day, a smaller group marched in front of D Las Vegas downtown.

Culinary Local 226 spokeswoman Bethany Khan said meetings would continue with D Las Vegas management July 13. No date has been set for talks to resume with Westgate, which issued an emailed statement Wednesday.
