Las Vegas Union Says Caesars Entertainment Forcing Hospitality Workers to Enforce 'Do Not Disturb' Policies
A Las Vegas union states Caesars Entertainment has rejected a proposal to have security personnel first enter a hotel guestroom that has hung a 'do not disturb' indication for lots more than 24 hours.
Caesars Entertainment and a casino union disagree on whom should be inspecting rooms that display 'do not disturb' signs for significant periods of the time.
Culinary Workers Union 226, a 57,000-member strong labor group that represents housekeepers, bartenders, cocktail and meals servers, bellmen, and cooks, wants casino safety to function as very first to enter such guestrooms. Union leaders say forcing housekeepers to perform such tasks falls beyond the scope of their responsibilities and training.
The Culinary Union states that Caesars rejected a proposal that would need security employees to be initial to doors that are open rooms whose occupants have actually requested staff to keep out.
'To not protect their largely female workforce is disgraceful so we are frankly shocked,' Culinary Union Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Argüello-Kline said in a statement. ' We shall continue to fight this and can inform the thousands of females we represent in Las Vegas with this companies' shameful behavior.'
Caesars implemented room that is 24-hour in February. Nonetheless, the casino operator has not settled how such inspections will be performed after the union fought back against the business's original plan to have housekeepers perform the tasks.
