Protest blocks Las Vegas Strip

Members of Culinary Local 226 blocked traffic on the Strip in front of the Cosmopolitan hotel Wednesday to protest stalled contract negotiations with management. At least 104 people were cited for obstructing the roadway during the protest, which closed parts of Las Vegas Boulevard for 50 minutes, Las Vegas police said.

Culinary Union spokeswoman Yvanna Cancela says the protest was the first time in two decades that workers have engaged in civil disobedience outside a unionized casino. Workers have been in contract talks with Cosmopolitan owner Deutsche Bank for two years.
