Culinary Union reaches tentative agreement with LVH

CREATED Mar 19, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Culinary and Bartenders Union negotiating committee reached a tentative agreement for a new five-year contract with the LVH Wednesday.

This concludes the unions' contract negotiations with all Las Vegas Strip casino resorts whose contracts expired on June 1 last year.

The tentative agreement with the LVH follows settlements with MGM Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, Riviera, Tropicana, Treasure Island, and the Stratosphere.

"We are not done because the thousands of workers downtown and in the laundries do not have new contracts yet," said Geoconda Arguello-Kline, Secretary-Treasurer of the Culinary Union. "We hope we can reach a fair settlement with the remaining unsettled houses very soon."

The remaining unsettled properties are: Margaritaville, Fremont, Main Street Station, Four Queens, Binion’s, Plaza, Las Vegas Club, The D, Golden Nugget, El Cortez, Golden Gate and Brady Linen Services.

A strike authorization vote is scheduled for Thursday, March 27. If the vote passes, the union may call a strike against any of the companies without a contract at any time.
