Caesars and MGM Settle With Las Vegas Union, Avert Strike

The Las Vegas Strip's two largest casino operators averted a potential strike with tens of thousands of culinary and hospitality workers when they came to a labor agreement with the workers union.

The Culinary Union announced on June 2nd that they had come to an agreement with representatives of Caesars Resorts International, covering 12,000 workers across Caesars Palace, The Linq, Flamingo, Planet Hollywood, Paris Las Vegas, Cromwell properties. The next day leaders of MGM Resorts International struck an agreement, which will cover 24,000 workers at properties such as New York New York, MGM Grand, Bellagio, Circus Circus, Excalibur, Luxor, Mandalay Bay, Mirage, and more.

Other properties that are owned by single operators such as the Treasure Island, Stratosphere, Tropicana, The D, and others are still negotiating deals with the union. While the possibility of a large strike remain, it's likely that the smaller properties will fall in line behind the two groups that have settled.

Union workers in Las Vegas are requesting higher wages, distress buttons for workers that clean hotel rooms, and redundancy training that will protect jobs from being replaced by robots.

This is excellent news for everyone. Workers get stability, and casinos get to operate. I admit to being selfish with this, as I have a trip to Sin City coming up in a couple weeks. I'm happy that most of the Strip will be operational when my wife and I are there. 🍺

Yeah a great news really, like always the conclusion is that you have to fight for your rights (from a workers point of view) and the employers wouldn't appreciate what you're doing for them without it's being demanded from the employees themselves (or the syndicate)
So a great news for everybody and especially for Dustin, the last thing we want is your vacation to be spoiled man 😛
