Culinary Local 226 members at some of the largest Strip properties are expected to ratify contract agreements with three employers this week.
About 40,000 hospitality workers in Las Vegas will participate in ratification votes for five-year contracts negotiated earlier this month, the union said. Caesars Entertainment workers were the first to vote on Monday, with sessions to be held in the morning and in the evening. MGM Resorts workers will vote Tuesday and Wynn Resorts workers will vote Wednesday.
Speaking to reporters via Zoom on Monday, Culinary Secretary-Treasurer Ted Pappageorge said the significant wage increases, guaranteed lower workloads, protections from job-replacing technology and career support are “historic” additions to the workers’ contracts.
