LAS VEGAS >> Members of a powerful Las Vegas hotel union are planning a vote next month that could empower organizers to call for a strike.

The Culinary union is negotiating over contracts that cover about 10,000 Las Vegas workers.

Last week, members voted to end a contract extension put in place in June, which means workers now have the right to picket, boycott, and strike.

Culinary spokeswoman Yvanna Cancela says members will take a strike authorization vote on March 20.

The 17 casinos still in negotiations include the Golden Nugget, the D, Tropicana and the Stratosphere. The union recently agreed on new contracts with MGM Resorts International and Caesars.

Cancela says contract negotiations have not ended in a strike since 1991, when workers picketed the Frontier casino for more than 6 years.

Vegas getting too expensive. Did you know they slap on a service charge to every bill that go up to 20%? That's really tips whether you want to give it or not. They are making you do so. Also they add a convenience package to every stay that includes internet access, "free" admission to a local disco, and this and that. You might not even use these so-called services but it is legal for them to do so. Forget Vegas. Go to more exotic destinations in the Orient.

Just found an article in Time.com. go to BUSINESS and read about the crooked Vegas taxi drivers who "long haul" you by charging up to 4X the fare. Happens in the Philippines and Thailand, too. Cops don't pay much attention to tourists' complaints. In Rio they say, "When are you leaving?"

A little know fact about the casinos. They hire a large number of illegals through the union. That include the culinary union. The casinos and the union have departments to assist in obtaining green cards, and directions to any other source of identification, including faked drives license etc.
