Union Resolves Vegas Hotel Disputes Ahead of Super Bowl

By    |   Monday, 05 February 2024 09:19 AM EST

A hospitality union has struck deals with nearly all remaining unsettled Las Vegas hotel-casinos — and called off a strike deadline for one — averting a walkout ahead of Super Bowl LVIII.

The last tentative agreement was reached Sunday between Culinary Local 226 and Downtown Grand, representing about 200 workers, the Las Vegas Review Journal reported.

Culinary has been negotiating a citywide five-year contract for its members after it expired last June, the outlet noted. The union represents housekeepers, servers, bellmen, porters, bartenders, and kitchen and laundry workers across the valley.

The tentative agreements avoid a labor dispute before the region hosts the Super Bowl on Sunday. Golden Nugget Las Vegas emerged overnight Sunday as one of remaining properties to reach a deal with Culinary Union, 8NewsNow reported.

All but one properties either on or near the famed Las Vegas Strip have deals as well, the outlet reported. Culinary and associated Bartenders Local 165 said Sunday they decided to give more time to Virgin Las Vegas, an off-Strip resort owned by JCH Hospitality.

The original deadline for contracts resolution was Friday.

Culinary officials boasted they'd set a "historic" with similar gains to those earned with the Strip's three largest employers last fall — including higher wages and benefits, a daily housekeeping requirement, protections from job-replacing technology, and workforce safety measures, the Review Journal reported.

"These were tough negotiations and it took over two years of preparation, 10 months of negotiations, lots of hard work, committee meetings, sleepless nights, and worker-led organizing," Culinary Secretary Treasurer Ted Pappageorge said in a statement.

"Culinary Union members comprise a major component of Nevada's middle-class and in these negotiations, we proudly won our fair share of record profits by securing historic protections and billions in raises for working families in Nevada."
