LAS VEGAS — The end of Las Vegas' most bitter labor dispute in years appears near at Binion's Horseshoe in downtown Las Vegas, where 600 workers have been on the picket lines for more than nine months.
Employees will vote on a new three-year contract offer today. It was approved Monday night by the 30-member negotiating committee representing Culinary Local 226 and Bartenders Local 165. The new proposal was presented to the union Sunday night after negotiations between top union and management officials. It calls for a raise of at least $1.25 an hour for non-tipped employees and 63 cents an hour for tipped employees.
