LAS VEGAS - The Culinary and Bartenders Union announced Tuesday it reached tentative agreements with Boyd Gaming Corporation on new worker contracts for the Fremont Hotel and Casino and Main Street Station.
Union representatives say the 5-year deals follow similar terms to the agreement the union reached with the Golden Nugget.
"We are pleased to have a tentative agreement with the Fremont and Main Street Station,” said Geoconda Arguello-Kline, Secretary-Treasurer of the Culinary Union in a statement. “Boyd has shown that they respect their employees and are invested in their workforce. We hope that the other Downtown casinos follow the example of Boyd and Golden Nugget as we negotiate with them over the next couple of days.”
Workers must still ratify the agreement.
The Culinary Union is still negotiating with the D, Four Queens, Binion's, the Plaza, the Las Vegas Club, the El Cortez and Golden Gate on new contracts. Union officials are threatening a strike if deals are not reached by June 1.
Some medical providers say they often deal with Hispanic patients who are afraid to seek medical care. It's hoped the opening of a new medical clinic will change that.
