Culinary Union Blasts Mayor Goodman For Remarks On Reopening

The Culinary Union is speaking out against Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman’s call for non-essential businesses to re-open in Nevada.

During an interview on CNN on Wednesday, Mayor Goodman suggested the city could serve as a test case in attempts to resume operations during the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement from the union, Secretary-Treasurer Geoconda Argüello-Kline called the Mayor’s comments “outrageous” and said 11 Culinary Union members in Las Vegas have died because of COVID-19.

Argüello-Kline said the mayor “doesn’t represent the Las Vegas Strip or the workers who are employed there” and that while the union wants to return to work, casino employees should not be “part of an experiment.”
