Union workers picket to draw attention to negotiations

LAS VEGAS - Dozens of culinary union workers picketed outside The D Las Vegas on Friday. The property is one of 13 still in negotiations with the union.

Workers are not striking at the properties yet. Instead, hospitality workers gathered for an informational picket. 

The lack of contracts with the properties including The D, Westgate, and other resorts affects roughly 8,000 people.

The union wants better security for resort employees, protection from technology, as well as increased wages. 

A spokesperson for the Westgate issued the following statement. 

"It's important to note that we accepted the union's request to hold off on negotiations with us until they finished with some of their larger partners."

"They are calling for a picket line of our resort before giving us the opportunity to properly negotiate this agreement. "

MGM, Caesars, the Stratosphere, and the Plaza all struck five-year deals with the union.
