Hard Rock Casino Loses Labor Appeal

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A federal appeals court is telling the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas to bargain with a union representing more than two dozen parking valets.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit sided Friday with the National Labor Relations Board in saying casino objections to the union were wrong.

The casino had challenged the board’s decision over whether the union should represent part-time valets. It also unsuccessfully challenged how the vote to pick the union was handled.

The ruling enforces the labor board’s order directing the casino to bargain in good faith with the Professional, Clerical and Miscellaneous Employees Local 995. The chapter is affiliated with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

The casino is separate from the restaurant chain with the same name.
