Culinary and soon-to-open Fontainebleau reach union organizing agreement

The Nevada Independent   ·   Link to Article

Operators of the nearly completed Fontainebleau Las Vegas reached an agreement with Culinary Workers Local 226 and Bartenders Local 165 on a card check neutrality agreement, which allows much of the property’s non-gaming workforce to decide whether they want union representation.

The 3,700-room Strip resort is expected to open in December with 6,500 employees.


“We are pleased that Fontainebleau workers will have the opportunity to decide whether to be union and applaud the company’s decision to respect their employees’ choice,” Culinary Secretary-Treasurer Ted Pappageorge said in a statement Friday.
