Vegas - Union strike vote called for May 16. Contract Expires May 31.

Saw in the paper this morning the the largest union in Vegas has called a strike vote. If the workers do strike, it would hit the properties of MGM (MGM, Bellagio, Mirage, Teasure Island, Golden Nugget), Mandalay Group (Luxor, Monte Carlo, Excalibur, Circus Circus), Park Place (Bally's, Paris), and Harrah's.

The union represents 53,000 housekeepers, bartenders, waiters. About half the casino workers in all at the larger locations.

Hope my Memorial Day weekend trip is still on.

I read a couple of recent articles from the Las Vegas Review-Journal's website about the possible strike. Yikes! I will be there May 30th thru June 7th on a business/pleasure trip. Two of my co-workers have never been to Vegas before, so this will be their first impression! Hopefully the dispute will be resolved without the strike.
