CARSON CITY — The Culinary Workers Union Local 226 continues to negotiate with resorts to call back laid off workers before hiring new ones for a lower wage or offering former workers a lower wage when they reapply for their former jobs. SB386, also known as the Right to Return bill, hopes to require companies to offer those employees who were laid off during the pandemic their former jobs back. The proposed legislation would apply to hospitality and tourism workers who were laid off after March 12, 2020, and employed for at least six months before the state shut down nonessential businesses. The bill enables workers to return to work for up to two years, if their contract allows that, and they could file a civil lawsuit against companies that don’t comply. Entities such as chambers of commerce in Las Vegas, Henderson, and Reno/Sparks, Southwest Airlines, and gaming companies Boyd Gaming Corp. and Caesars Entertainment object the bill, which is still in the state senate’s Commerce and Labor Committee. The Nevada Independent reports that the committee, culinary union, and hotels are negotiating the bill. [Nevada Independent]

SOUTHWEST — A new casino could break ground near Ikea. Red Rock Resorts CEO Frank Fertitta III says the company, which already owns the land, could start development of the parcel on Durango Drive near the 215 beltway soon, fueled by the proceeds of the Palms sale on Tuesday for $650 million in cash to the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.
