Culinary Union Ready To Strike

The Culinary and Bartender unions are threatening to launch a strike at downtown casinos. Currently the unions remain in negotiations with nine downtown properties. The Las Vegas Sun reports that union officials have not set an exact date for a potential strike. But a majority of the union workers in downtown have already signed up to join the picket lines. Last month the Golden Nugget reached a five-year agreement with the unions becoming the only downtown property to do so.
