LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – The Culinary and Bartenders Unions on Monday set a February 2nd strike deadline for the more than 20 Las Vegas Strip and Downtown properties with which they have yet to reach a new contract.

Unless a satisfactory deal is reached by 5 pm on that date, some 7,700 workers will walk off the job. However, Culinary Workers Union Local 226 says if negotiations break down, workers could strike individual properties sooner.

Properties facing February 2nd, 2024 strike deadline:
Las Vegas Strip Downtown Las Vegas
Circus Circus Binion’s
Hilton Grand Vacations Circa
Rio Downtown Grand
Sahara Las Vegas El Cortez
Strat Four Queens
Treasure Island Fremont
Trump Hotel Las Vegas Golden Gate
Virgin Hotels Golden Nugget
Waldorf Astoria Main Street
Westgate The D Casino

Negotiations with the properties are ongoing. Union leadership plans to meet with nine this week, and two more local resort-casinos next week.

Negotiation Schedule
January 9, 2024 Hilton Grand Vacations, Strat
January 10, 2024 Circus Circus
January 11, 2024 Sahara
January 12, 2024 The D, Circa, Golden Gate, Treasure Island, Waldorf Astoria
January 16, 2024 Westgate
January 17, 2024 Trump Hotel Las Vegas
January 18, 2024 Grand Sierra Resort (Reno)

A strike would mark a first for several resort casinos. Many have never faced this sort of labor standoff before.

Last year Culinary Local 226 authorized a citywide strike when they reached an impasse with six major resort-casinos. That walkout was planned for just days before the start of the Las Vegas Grand Prix, and the arrival of hundreds of thousands of F1 race fans. Eleventh-hour deals with major Strip properties like MGM Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, and Wynn Resorts averted a strike and resulted in historic five-year contracts.
