This week’s video discusses how 50,000 workers can leave their jobs at any time because service workers want better pay, benefits and profit sharing at major resorts.
The possibility of more than 50,000 Las Vegas workers going on strike at any time is very real as unions approve a citywide strike on October 6. Now, the city is on edge, watching to see if service-related employees, including chefs, bartenders and housekeepers, will go on strike and throw the city into chaos.
These employees are seeking a new five-year deal to offer better pay, more benefits and profit sharing at key resorts like Aria Resort & Casino, Bellagio, Caesars Palace, Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Excalibur Hotel & Casino, Hara Las Vegas Casino & Hotel, Hosche Las Vegas, Luxor Hotel & Casino, Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, New York-New York Hotel & Casino, Paris Las Vegas, Park MGM, Planet Hollywood Las Vegas, Rio Allsuit Hotel & Casino, The Cromwell and The LINQ Hotel + Experience. 슬롯
Ted Papilloj, regional director of the Culinary Workers’ Union, said casino companies “…There’s a chance to do the right thing, step up to the plate and get the deal done, but if not, there could be a Las Vegas strike at any time.”
Negotiations have been taking place with little progress since April, with no strike deadline, but the union has met with MGM Grand, Caesars Palace and Win Las Vegas in turn in recent days. The union’s proposal would be the largest pay increase in history, including a reduction in the cabin quota for domestic helpers, better workers’ safety, and a reduction in overall workload.
