LAS VEGAS (AP) - Union workers at Las Vegas Strip casinos owned by MGM Resorts International are set to vote on a five-year contract Wednesday.
MGM's proposed agreement with the Culinary Union Local 226 and Bartenders Union Local 165 would cover more than 21,000 union positions at Aria, Bellagio, Circus Circus, Slots A Fun, Excalibur, Luxor, Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Monte Carlo and the New York-New York Hotel.
Results are set to be announced on Thursday.
The contract covers food and beverage workers, guest room attendants and other employees. Union officials say some of the terms would apply to about 5,000 additional workers at the MGM Grand Las Vegas, Signature and Vdara hotels.
MGM Resorts is the first company in Las Vegas to settle with the union after contracts expired citywide June 1.
