Culinary Workers Union Local 226 said Sunday night it had averted a strike by reaching a contract agreement with Downtown Grand, the last unsigned downtown property, and deciding to give the off-Strip Virgin Hotels Las Vegas a few more weeks.

In a statement, Culinary Secretary-Treasurer Ted Pappageorge said the union, along with the affiliated Bartenders Local 165 and the operators of Downtown Grand, tentatively agreed on a new five-year deal covering 200 workers.

“[The unions] have decided to give Virgin Hotel Las Vegas more time and we expect a resolution on a new contract in the coming weeks,” Pappageorge said.

A strike date had been set for Monday at 5 a.m.
