Union Members Vote To Authorize Strike On Las Vegas Strip

press release from Culinary Workers Union Local 226 emphasized that support for a strike is strong among its members. Over 95% of them voted to authorize a strike during Tuesday’s two voting sessions.

Right now, union members are working without a contract at eight of the 22 affected properties. That number could soon escalate, resulting in further escalation on the union’s behalf.

On Tuesday afternoon, Culinary Workers Union Local 226 Secretary-Treasurer Ted Pappageorge insinuated that to McKenna Ross in an article by the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

“We’d love to be able to say we have a deal. We’re not expecting it at this point. I’ll say that we’re optimistic but after five months, we’re not getting anywhere with any of the major companies.”
