The union representing thousands of housekeepers in Las Vegas says Caesars Entertainment has rejected a proposal to include language in a new contract to protect workers if a “Do Not Disturb” sign has been hanging on a doorknob more than 24 hours.
The Culinary Union on Wednesday said under its proposal, security would open a room “for entry and service” if a guest refuses housekeeping for more than 24 hours.
Caesars employees represented by the union say they don’t feel safe entering rooms that have had the sign on for extended periods.
The union is negotiating contracts for thousands of Caesars employees.
Caesars previously announced security would begin checking rooms every 24 hours, even if the sign is hanging on the doorknob. It didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
