Victory! Tentative agreement reached with MGM Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, & Wynn Resorts - After settling union contracts for 40,000 hospitality workers, the Culinary Union celebrates historic wins for working families in Nevada secured in the best contract ever won with MGM Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, and Wynn Resorts. In negotiations, the Culinary and Bartenders Unions have won a greater measure of security for workers including: *Winning the largest wage increases ever negotiated in the history of the Culinary Union. *Reducing workload and steep housekeeping room quotas, daily room cleaning, and establishing the right for guest room attendants to securely work in set areas. *Providing the best on-the-job safety protections for all classifications, including safety committees, expanding the use of safety buttons to more workers, penalties if safety buttons don’t work, enforcing mandatory room checks for employee and public safety, and tracking sexual harassment, assault, and criminal behavior by customers. *Strengthening existing technology protections to guarantee advanced notification when new technology is introduced, which would impact jobs, require training for new jobs created by technology, health care and severance pay for workers who are laid off because of new technology, the right to privacy from tracking technology introduced by companies, notice of third-party data sharing workers have generated through their work, and the right to bargain over technology that tracks the location of employees or messaging between workers. *Extending recall rights so that workers have more job security and have the right to return to their jobs in the event of another pandemic or economic crisis for up to three-years. *Making clear that the no-strike clause does not prevent the Culinary Union from taking action, including picketing and leafleting in support of non-union restaurants workers on the casino property.  We aren't done fighting for workers yet as there are 24 more contracts to go! 24 casino-resort companies are still under a contract extension: *Las Vegas Strip: Circus Circus, Four Seasons, Hilton Grand Vacations, Mirage, Rio, Sahara Las Vegas, Strat, Treasure Island, Tropicana, Trump Hotel Las Vegas, Virgin Hotels, Waldorf Astoria, and Westgate. *Downtown Las Vegas: Binion’s, Circa, Downtown Grand, El Cortez, Four Queens, Fremont, Golden Gate, Golden Nugget, Main Street, The D Casino, and Plaza.  *VIDEO from November 10, 2023 press conference.*
