LAS VEGAS (AP) — Union officials are planning a protest Friday at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas as they continue to demand that the Republican presidential candidate start contract negotiations.

The Culinary Union said they expect hundreds of people at the 9 a.m. Friday protest at the off-Strip property.

The powerful labor group last month scored a victory in their effort to unionize when the National Labor Relations Board rejected Trump Ruffin Commercial LLC’s challenge of a December election in which a majority of the 447 votes cast favored unionization.

The ruling meant the company had exhausted its appeals with the board, and that the union officially stands to represent 523 full-time, part-time and on-call employees in guest services, housekeeping, food and beverage.

Trump representatives couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
