New report counters claim that smoking ban would hurt casino gaming numbers

KTNV   ·   Link to Article

The Culinary Worker's Union, representing hospitality staff in Southern Nevada, said in a statement they would support any move to protect workers including banning smoking on casino floors.

The Culinary Union has long been supportive of policies that protect workers, including if casinos ever went smokeless.

We welcomed news in September 2020 that MGM International Resorts’ Park MGM Las Vegas would be entirely smoke free and said at the time: “It's long overdue for an entirely smoke-free casino in Las Vegas, and the Culinary Union is completely supportive.”

The Culinary Union will poll hospitality workers in the near future to see how members feel about the issue.
