Union Members, Supporters Arrested
(Las Vegas, NV) — About a thousand Culinary Union members marched along the streets of Las Vegas yesterday in favor of organizing workers at Station Casinos. Metro Police say one hundred people were arrested and released for blocking an entrance to Palace Station.
The union members and supporters walked from the Culinary headquarters to the West Sahara Avenue resort. A similar show of support took place last month with nearly two dozen arrests. Culinary officials have been unsuccessful in trying to unionize Station’s 15-thousand employees.
