Vegas Casino Culinary Workers Vote To Strike


By Paul Johnson

Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN) - Workers in downtown Las Vegas could strike at any time.
Several thousand union workers voted to authorize a strike against downtown casinos.
The culinary and bartenders union covers more than 37-thousand employees on the las Vegas strip.
Over 99-percent of them voted 'yes,' Thursday' to give the union authority to call for a strike at any time, unless they get new contracts.
Union contracts expired last june.
Without being able to reach a deal on an extension, the union ended negotiations five weeks ago.
It's not clear how such a strike would impact tourists, because the union could target any or all of ten different properties, including Golden Nugget, El Cortez, and Las Vegas plaza.
