What are you going to do to make your casino a great place to work?
A special message from Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice in Las Vegas
We are clergy and lay leaders from across the Las Vegas Valley and we are deeply concerned about working people in our community. We have met with workers from Station Casinos, heard their cries for justice, and we cannot stand by idly. Our faith traditions call on employers to recognize the rights of workers to organize and bargain collectively and the right of their employees to choose freely whether to unionize or not without intimidation or coercion.
Unfortunately, Station Casinos has been found to have broken federal labor law eighty-eight (88) times, according to two National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Administrative Law Judges. That is the largest number of unfair labor practices committed by a single employer in the history of Nevada gaming. The company appealed the judges’ recommended decisions, and, last October, the NLRB in Washington, D.C. completely denied the company’s appeals and even found two more violations. Workers at Station Casinos simply want to ensure their rights are honored and they can provide for themselves and their families. This is a struggle about human dignity, one that should come to a just resolution.
Station Casinos, God hears your workers’ cries for Justice. All of our faith traditions support the rights of workers to freely organize or not without intimidation or coercion. We pray you soften your hearts, hear your workers, and agree to a fair process.
The following are Las Vegas hotel-casinos where workers got to decide — legally and through a fair process that was free from management intimidation and interference — whether to deal with employers together through the Union.

Since we had our last wage increase in 2007:
Since 2007,Union casino workers on the Strip:
IT’S OUR TIME NOW! WE DESERVE BETTER!
A fair process would let workers make their own decisions as to whether to unionize in a way that is free from management interference, intimidation, bullying, or litigation.
The company has ignored our demand.
Starting on April 18, thirteen of our co-workers will do a 7-day fast outside Palace Station to draw attention to our fight for dignity and respect. They will be joined by union casino workers and members of the Las Vegas clergy.
The fast starts at 10:00 AM on Wednesday (map and schedule). Come to support the fasters!
Please send a message to those fasting this week for justice and fairness by sending an email here.

Union Casino Workers Fasting in Support of Station Casinos Workers:
On March 22, we delivered our petition for a FAIR PROCESS to the company. A MAJORITY of our co-workers in Culinary & Bartenders Unions’ classifications have signed it. Instead of respecting our signatures, Station Casinos is telling us to do an “election” instead.
Workers at all these other casinos in Las Vegas got a fair process to decide whether they wanted union representation:
Bill's Gamblin' Hall
Elara, Hilton Grand Vacations
Hilton Grand Vacations-Flamingo LV
Hilton Grand Vacations-LVH
Hilton Grand Vacations-LV Strip
Margaritaville Las Vegas
New York-New York
Paris Las Vegas
The Signature at MGM Grand
|Wynn Las Vegas
The D of Las Vegas
Las Vegas Club
Main Street Station
Plaza Hotel & Casino
Station Casinos properties where workers have had a fair process: NONE.
Why won’t Station Casinos give us the same respect?
