Negotiators have reached a tentative agreement on a new contract covering about 1,800 culinary workers and bartenders at the Hilton hotel-casino.
Culinary Workers Union Local 226 and Bartenders Union Local 165 say members will be asked to ratify the deal on Tuesday.
The deal's the latest in a series of contracts with Las Vegas Strip employers since previous contracts expired June first.
Union officials said a pact with the Hilton would leave the Tropicana hotel-casino as the only property still without a contract on the Strip.
Negotiations also were continuing on behalf of 7,500 workers currently working under extended contracts at 12 downtown properties and two industrial laundries.
The unions voted September 12th to strike if talks deadlock.
