After two days of voting in a National Labor Relations Board election, a majority of workers at the Trump International Hotel Las Vegas voted to be represented by the Culinary Workers Union Local 226 and the Bartenders Union Local 165 of Unite Here. Over 500 employees of the hotel are in the union's bargaining units and were eligible to vote.
Trump Las Vegas workers voted in the NLRB election on Dec. 4 and 5 at their hotel. This comes nine months after workers at the Trump International Hotel Toronto voted to join Uunite Here, and one week after the Trump Toronto workers ratified their first contract.
"Trump Las Vegas workers have spoken loud and clear: They want respect, dignity, and the Las Vegas union standard," said Geoconda Arguello-Kline, Secretary-Treasurer of the Culinary Union. "Trump Las Vegas should recognize the workers' vote immediately and sit down with us to negotiate a contract as soon as possible."
"I'm proud to work at this five-star hotel and am even prouder that we have joined the union," said Alma Zamarin, a food server at the property. "My coworkers and I need fair wages, good benefits, and job security at the Trump Las Vegas, just like workers at other non-gaming properties on the Las Vegas Strip."
Other non-casino hotels on the Las Vegas Strip that are union and have union benefits: Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas, Elara Hilton Grand Vacations, Hilton Grand Vacations Suites on the Las Vegas Strip, Hilton Grand Vacation Paradise and Hilton Grand Vacations Club at the Flamingo.
