Union contracts covering 3,300 union workers expired on June 1, 2018 at 6 casino resorts in Las Vegas. Negotiations continue for: SLS, Treasure Island, Margaritaville, Downtown Grand, El Cortez, Golden Gate, and The D. Hundreds of Culinary Union members have been picketing every Friday for 5 weeks.

Members of the Culinary and Bartenders Unions whose contracts are now expired: Bartenders, guest room attendants, cocktail servers, food servers, porters, bellman, cooks, and kitchen workers who are employed at the 7 unsettled casino resorts on the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Las Vegas. 

The Culinary and Bartenders Unions have proposed new contract language to provide greater measure of security for members including workplace safety, sexual harassment, subcontracting, technology, and immigration. In addition, the Union’s economic proposal seeks to provide workers a fair share of the employers’ enormous anticipated cash flows and Trump tax windfalls.   

The Culinary and Bartenders Unions encourage Nevada locals, elected officials, political candidates, and tourists to support workers by not patronizing hotels and casinos under a labor dispute. Please support workers who are fighting for justice and do not cross picket lines.
