The Culinary Union and Strip resorts came to a tentative agreement on a new five-year contract that covers 36,000 members.

So far, Caesars Entertainment and MGM Resorts struck deals that include language on worker security regarding sexual harassment, workload, technology, and immigration.

The new five-year contracts cover Bally’s, Flamingo, Harrah’s, Paris, Planet Hollywood, Cromwell, The Linq, Caesars Palace including Nobu, the Rio, Aria, the Bellagio, Circus Circus, Excalibur, Luxor, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay including the Delano, the Mirage, New York-New York, and the Park MGM.

Specific details of the contracts have not been released.

Penn National, Golden Entertainment, Boyd Gaming, and more have yet to renew contracts, affecting about 14,000 additional workers ranging from bartenders, guest room attendants, and cocktail servers, to food servers, porters, bellman, cooks, and kitchen workers.

Members of the Culinary Union voted to strike on May 22 as soon as June 1. Around 25,000 of the 50,000 members came out to vote during two sessions at the Thomas & Mack Center, with 99 percent voting to authorize a strike. So far, the union has not elected to call a strike.

The last city-wide strike in Las Vegas took place in 1984, affecting 32 resorts and lasting 67 days.
