Unions representing about 1,200 workers have reached a tentative contract with the Stratosphere hotel-casino.
Officials say a ratification vote is scheduled Saturday involving Culinary Workers Union Local 226 and Bartenders Union Local 165.
Approval would make the Stratosphere the latest Las Vegas Strip property to ink deals with the unions after months of negotiations.
Separate deals were ratified last month covering 21,000 workers at MGM Mirage hotels and casinos and in June affecting 15,000 Harrah's Entertainment workers.
The unions also have a new contract with the Riviera hotel-casino.
Almost 10,000 union members continue to work under extensions while negotiations continue with smaller casinos on the Strip and downtown.
A strike authorization vote is set for Wednesday.
