Culinary Union To Rally Outside Trump Hotel In Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Housekeepers, cooks and bartenders are rallying outside Donald Trump's hotel to draw attention to their efforts to unionize workers at the property just off the Las Vegas Strip.

Culinary Union officials are planning a short march at 5 p.m. Friday to the Trump International Hotel Las Vegas, where they say they will rally because the hotel has blocked efforts to organize its workforce.

Trump hotel officials deny the charge and say the majority of its workers are happy, saying it was likely why the hotel hadn't unionized since opening in 2008.
