Tropicana Las Vegas Closing Tuesday to Make Way for a Baseball Stadium

The Culinary Workers Union Local 226, which represents about 350 workers at the Tropicana, said it would help employees find new jobs, apply for unemployment and upgrade their skills.

“The goal is to make sure that the Tropicana workers are taken care of,” Ted Pappageorge, the secretary-treasurer of the union, said in an interview.

He said that union employees will receive a severance of $2,000 for each year of employment and six months of health insurance coverage. He added that he hoped the Tropicana workers would be offered jobs at the stadium complex when it is completed.
