Updated January 29, 2024 - 7:02 pm

The list of casinos yet to agree to terms with the Culinary Union on a new contract is slowly dwindling with less than a week to go before a strike deadline.

Nearly 700 union workers agreed to terms on a five-year contract with Circus Circus late Friday night, according to a union news release.

Negotiations continue with officials of 15 remaining Strip independent and downtown Las Vegas casino properties for 4,000 workers ahead of the 5 a.m. February 2, 2024, strike deadline.

The union said a Circus Circus contract ratification vote will be scheduled soon.
