Culinary and Bartenders Unions contracts covering 2,000 union workers expired on June 1, 2018. Almost all the casinos have settled, but negotiations continue for The D Casino and the Golden Gate in Downtown Las Vegas.
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 unsettled union properties 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, automation/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.
