Las Las Vegas Union States Caesars Entertainment Forcing Hospitality Workers to Enforce 'Do Not Disturb' Policies
A vegas union claims Caesars Entertainment has rejected a proposal to have security personnel first enter a hotel guestroom who has hung a 'do not disturb' indication for more than 24 hours.
Caesars Entertainment and a casino union disagree on who should be inspecting spaces that display 'do not disturb' signs for substantial periods of the time.
Culinary Workers Union 226, a 57,000-member strong labor group that represents housekeepers, bartenders, cocktail and food servers, bellmen, and cooks, desires casino safety to end up being the first to enter such guestrooms. Union leaders say forcing housekeepers to execute tasks that are such beyond the scope of their responsibilities and training.
The Culinary Union states that Caesars rejected a proposal that would need security workers to be the initial to doors that are open rooms whose occupants have actually required staff to keep out.
'To maybe not protect their largely female workforce is disgraceful and we are frankly shocked,' Culinary Union Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Argüello-Kline said in a statement. ' We shall continue to fight this and certainly will inform the thousands of ladies we represent in Las Vegas of this companies' shameful behavior.'
Caesars implemented 24-hour room checks in February. However, the casino operator has not fixed how such inspections will be completed after the union fought back against the business's original plan to own housekeepers perform the tasks.
