LAS VEGAS (AP) — Unions representing 65,000 Las Vegas-area casino workers have dropped two MGM Resorts International properties from a lawsuit accusing companies of skimping on coronavirus protective measures.
A Culinary Union executive called it a victory to drop legal proceedings against the owner of the Bellagio resort and the Signature Condominiums towers and begin "expedited arbitration" over safety requirements. The union says 22 workers or dependent family members have died from COVID-19.
MGM Resorts on Tuesday called the court filing "frivolous." Culinary and bartenders' unions didn't drop claims against Caesars Entertainment, operator of Harrah's Las Vegas, over measures at a restaurant there.
