Bringing back furloughed or laid-off employees has also been a priority for many businesses across the valley.

About half of the 60,000 workers in Nevada represented by Culinary Workers Union Local 226 and Bartenders Union Local 165, affiliates of Unite Here, have yet to be called back to work, according to spokeswoman Bethany Khan.

“Unionized casinos should be recalling workers who were laid off due to COVID19 as the tourism levels rise,” Khan said in an email, adding that workers should be brought back by seniority. “Staffing shortages aren’t good for customers, workers, or the company. The Culinary Union will keep advocating to bring more workers back to work.”
