‘Matter of life or death’

“This is a matter of life-or-death for workers, and I urge everyone to proceed very deliberately and very carefully,” the Culinary Union, which represents some 60,000 Las Vegas workers, said in a statement.

“Culinary Union members and other casino workers will become frontline workers because we are the ones who will interact with guests daily and frequently.”

The union is demanding that workers who will be most exposed be tested regularly for coronavirus and given protective equipment if needed.

“What happens if someone who arrives in Vegas asymptomatic develops symptoms here and decides to hole up in their room for a couple of days instead of asking for medical attention?” the union said.
