Tight labor market in Las Vegas could help avert Culinary strike

“If there is a strike called, it will be an open-ended strike until we get a contract, like the Teamsters, like the United Auto Workers, like the writers and the actors,” Pappageorge said after the first round of voting Tuesday. “And I would just like to say this, it’s a moment.

Culinary officials say they are negotiating for wage increases; lowered housekeeping quotas and mandated daily room cleanings; stronger on-the-job safety programs; extended recall rights and more.
