The union representing housekeepers, cocktail and food servers, porters, bellmen, and kitchen workers at Caesars Entertainment properties in Las Vegas said it has reached a tentative agreement to avert a strike that could have begun as early as today.
In a Tweet at 2:41 this morning, the union stated "We are pleased to announce that a tentative agreement has been reached with @CaesarsEnt. The historic new 5-year deal covers approximately 12,000 workers at 9 casino resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. "
There was no word about negotiations with MGM Resorts International.
Last week, union members voted to authorize a strike over contract disputes regarding workplace training, wages and other issues.
