The contract, which affects about 900 employees, was approved by 95 percent of Palms workers, according to a statement from Culinary Local 226.

“We celebrate this historic agreement with Palms, which protects workers with the best health care in Nevada, strong job security, and fair wage increases,” Ted Pappageorge, secretary-treasurer for Culinary Local 226, said in the statement. “The San Manuel Gaming and Hospitality Authority and Palms Casino Resort have done the right thing by respecting their employees and recalling workers back to work with their seniority intact.”

Union leadership said the new agreement includes language on worker security regarding subcontracting, safety buttons, sexual harassment, workload, technology and immigration.
