With the Culinary Union's impending strike looming, now comes word that the D Las Vegas just negotiated a tentative agreement. The new five-year contract is retroactive to June 1, 2013, if it is ratified by the workers.
That narrows the list of Downtown resorts going on strike to six remaining. At 5 a.m. on June 1, restaurant workers, hotel housekeepers, cocktail servers, bartenders and other members of the unions at unsettled casinos will walk off their jobs and start 24/7 picketing of Four Queens, Binion's, The Plaza, Las Vegas Club and Golden Gate. Nearly 1,200 union workers remain without a contract in Downtown Las Vegas.
The union still doesn't have a negotiating meeting planned with the Golden Gate, although all other resorts plan to talk before the Sunday deadline.
