A survey commissioned by the Las Vegas Culinary Union found that 59% of all interviewed 더킹카지노
cocktail servers and 27% of all interviewed housekeepers have been harassed sexually by casino resorts guests, members of the management team or other individuals while at their workplace.
The report’s findings were made public earlier this week and at a time when members of the city’s UNITE HERE Culinary and Bartenders 더킹카지노
Unions are gearing up for a potential strike next month if negotiations over better contract terms with local casino operators come to a stall.
More than 50,000 people could walk off their jobs in June in what would be the first major citywide workers’ strike since 1984 when workers staged continuous rallies that lasted for 67 days.
Union members’ contracts are set to 더킹카지노
expire midnight May 31. There have been ongoing negotiations over the introduction of stronger safety and sexual harassment protections at the workplace with the owners of a total of 34 Strip and downtown Las Vegas casinos. However, the negotiating parties have generally been failing to reach an 더킹카지노
accord for quite some time now.
A citywide workers’ vote took place last week and of all 25,000 union voters who cast their vote, 99% approved a strike. The positive vote thus authorized the involved unions to call a strike as soon as Friday, June 1.
What Has Triggered Workers’ 더킹카지노
Call for Improved Safety Standards?
News about Las Vegas casino workers protesting against their work environment emerged amid multiple sexual harassment and sexual misconduct allegations against casino mogul Steve Wynn and just several months after the October 1 deadly mass shooting in which a lone gunman opened fire on a music festival crowd from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay, killing 58 people 더킹카지노
and injuring more than 500 others.
Caesars Entertainment Corp. and MGM Resorts International (owner of Mandalay Bay), which operate the largest number of properties on the Las Vegas Strip, have been engaged in active negotiations with workers over the safety improvements needed, according to 더킹카지노
separate statements from the involved unions and the operators themselves.
Some of the proposals discussed included policies addressing and aiming to prevent sexual harassment 더킹카지노
incidents as well as safety buttons for workers attending to guest rooms. The Culinary and Bartender Unions have said that discussions over those particular matters have been productive and that the two operators have been responsive to the proposals made. However, it seems that a final solution to the issues has eluded the negotiating parties.
It was understood that MGM has already provided housekeepers and 더킹카지노
other staff members with safety buttons and that it would look to add contract language that protects its employees from any form of harassment at the workplace. Caesars has, too, said in a recent statement that it was optimistic about reaching an agreement on all important issues discussed.
