Union Workers Will March In Summerlin Tomorrow

Union workers from Las Vegas casinos plan to march Thursday in Summerlin as part of ongoing labor protests of Station Casinos. Culinary Workers Union Local 226 say the march will start at 5 p.m., with protesters walking south from Palo Verde High School on Pavilion Center Drive to Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa.

The resort is owned by Station Casinos and is the company's headquarters.  A Station Casinos spokeswoman told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that there is no labor dispute. The union represents 55,000 culinary workers in the Las Vegas area. The grand opening of the long anticipated Downtown Summerlin shopping and dining center, which sits south of the casino, is scheduled for 10 a.m
