HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Workers at the Fiesta Henderson Hotel-Casino have voted to form a union.

The Culinary Union, which represents about 60,000 bartenders, housekeepers, porters and more workers at Las Vegas' famed casinos, announced it would be representing more than 300 workers at the Fiesta Henderson.

The union says 57% of about 300 workers voted in favor of the union on Friday.

Fiesta Henderson is the seventh property owned by Station Casinos to unionize since 2016.

Station Casinos' parent company Red Rock Resorts declined to comment on the vote.
