LAS VEGAS — The Culinary Workers Union in Las Vegas set a strike deadline of Nov. 10, after contract negotiations with major employers in the city stalled, including Caesars Entertainment, Wynn Resorts and MGM Resorts International. The strike would be the first for the union in more than 30 years. 

The union announced 35,000 members are ready and willing to walk off the job at 18 casinos on Nov. 10, which is just days before the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix is set to take place. The race is expected to have an estimated economic impact of $1.2 billion for Nevada, according to Forbes. 

Tens of thousands of hotel workers’ contracts expired earlier in 2023, and the Culinary Workers Union has been negotiating since April for a new contract that includes the highest wage increase in its history, more safety against workplace violence, job protections and training on new forms of technology, according to Fox 5 Las Vegas.
