Over 3,000 AFSCME Delegates marched in a rally in 2002 in Las Vegas, in support of the Culinary Worker's Union
Over 3,000 AFSCME Delegates marched in a rally on Freemont Street of Las Vegas in 2002, in support of the Culinary Worker's Union, who were facing loss of a master contract by the 'downtown' casinos.
AFSCME's enthusiastic demonstrations in behalf of HERE's Las Vegas culinary workers, carried out during the Convention there, apparently had a real impact.
All of the downtown (vs. 'Strip') hotels that were denying the workers a fair contract have now settled with HERE. The last of the group, the century-old Golden Gate Hotel, reached an agreement this week, and members of the local ratified it by a resounding vote of 118-0. Marchers included members of Tacoma's Local 120.
