2 downtown Las Vegas casinos reach tentative union pacts; strike looms at 7 other properties

  • Print

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - With a strike looming Sunday, two downtown Las Vegas hotels have reached tentative contract deals with culinary and bartender union members.

Culinary Union official Geoconda Arguello-Kline said Tuesday the pact reached with Boyd Gaming executives calls for five-year contracts for workers at the Fremont Hotel & Casino and Main Street Station.

Arguello-Kline says the settlement follows terms of a Golden Nugget contract ratified by workers May 1.

Talks are continuing with most of the seven remaining casinos where contracts expired last June 1.

Restaurant workers, hotel housekeepers, cocktail servers, bartenders, and other union members plan to walk off the job at 5 a.m. Sunday if contracts aren't reached with owners of The D, Four Queens, Binion's, Plaza, Las Vegas Club, El Cortez, and Golden Gate properties.
