1,000 Culinary Union workers reach deal with Strip casino

Updated February 1, 2024 - 9:16 am

More than 1,000 Culinary Union members at Treasure Island have agreed to a new contract with Treasure Island.

The Tuesday night announcement was made by the union in an email and a post on X. Fourteen resorts still have not reached a deal with the union. A 5 a.m. Friday strike deadline looms.

The tentative five-year contract was reached Tuesday evening. A ratification vote is to be scheduled soon, the union’s email said.

Nearly 3,000 workers at 14 resorts have yet to reach agreement. The Strip hotels without a contract include Virgin Hotels, Rio and Sahara Las Vegas. The downtown hotels without an agreement include Binion’s, Circa, Downtown Grand, El Cortez, Four Queens, Fremont, Golden Gate, Golden Nugget, Main Street, The Plaza and the D Casino.

The valley’s major casinos reached deals with the union more than two months ago.
