LAS VEGAS Wynn Resorts, MGM Resorts International and Caesars Entertainment have reached tentative deals with the Las Vegas Culinary and Bartenders Unions.

In total, deals with the three casino resort companies involve about 30,000 workers. Five-year contracts have been negotiated at each resort company.

The threat of the strike loomed with several trade shows in the city including SEMA which will run from October 31 through November 3, gathering 2,200 exhibitors and approximately 160,000 attendees.

The city is also in preparation to host their inaugural Formula One sporting event which is expected to attract hundreds of thousands of fans to the city. The racing event takes place November 16-18.

This year it had the possibility of a Sodexo/Centerplate strike at the Las Vegas Convention Center. In March, a deal was struck.
