LAS VEGAS (AP) — Workers at Donald Trump’s Las Vegas hotel have scored a victory in their effort to unionize.
The National Labor Relations Board issued a decision Thursday rejecting hotel management’s challenge of a December election in which a majority of workers voted to unionize.
Labor law professor Ruben Garcia of UNLV’s Boyd School of Law says there’s still a long road before hotel managers are forced to negotiate a contract with workers. The board could charge Trump Ruffin Commercial LLC with failing to negotiate in good faith, but that battle could drag on through federal appeals courts.
Las Vegas’ powerful Culinary Union held a large march down the Las Vegas Strip last week calling on Trump to give up the fight and negotiate a contract.
Hotel representatives didn’t have immediate comment Thursday.
