Gambling establishments in Las Vegas and unionized employees continue to reach labor arrangements two months after thousands of housekeepers, bartenders and others threatened to go on strike.

Members of the Culinary Union on Monday reached a tentative deal with 4 Queens and Binion’s casino-hotels in downtown Las Vegas.

The union says 650 members will be covered by the five-year agreement if workers ratify it.

The contracts of 50,000 unionized workers ended previously this year. Workers in May voted to license a strike over the absence of progress on agreement settlements.

The union and casino operators have actually since reached arrangements covering workers at more than two lots residential or commercial properties.

About 3,400 workers stay without contracts, and the union has stepped up its efforts by picketing outside some casino-hotels and a casino-restaurant.
