The Cosmopolitan has now been added to the list of Las Vegas casino resorts with an active labor dispute

There is an escalating labor dispute at the
Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.  Picket lines and demonstrations by union
workers and community supporters at the Cosmopolitan could negatively
impact the customer experience at this high-end Strip resort.

The Cosmopolitan has now been added to the list of Las Vegas casino resorts with an active labor dispute. (See the www.VegasTravelAlert.org website). 

Since
January, the Cosmopolitan has been the site of picket lines and
demonstrations attended by thousands of people. We have also commenced
regular picket lines on the sidewalks of the Cosmopolitan, starting this
past weekend. (See
this news story.)

Workers
at the Cosmopolitan have been seeking a first contract since September,
2011.  They want the same opportunity to provide for themselves and
their families that other union workers enjoy on the Las Vegas Strip.
Our union has proposed contract language on job security and workload
based on the Union Standard on the Strip. We have not been able to reach
a settlement after nearly two years of talks.
