Two labor unions in Nevada, the Culinary Workers Union Local 226 and Bartenders Union Local 165, overwhelmingly voted to authorize a strike on the Las Vegas Strip.

Some 53,000 hospitality workers are in active negotiations with casino/hotel employers for a new five-year contract, of which more than 95% of workers voted for the strike.

The contracts for about 40,000 workers at 22 casino resorts owned by MGM Resorts (MGM), Caesars Entertainment (CZR), and Wynn Resorts (WYNN) expired on Sept. 15.
