Formula 1 Grand Prix in Las Vegas is in jeopardy
In October, 95% of service workers in Las Vegas voted to take decisive action and go on strike to pressure companies to improve their labor contracts.
More than 35 thousand service workers in Las Vegas are ready to go on strike on the morning of November 10 if operators MGM Resorts International, Caesars Entertainment and Wynn Encore Resort do not renegotiate the terms of their labor contracts.
Difficult negotiations between trade unions and operators have been going on for more than seven months.
The chosen strike date falls during the week of the inaugural Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix, an event expected to attract more than 100,000 tourists to the city.
However, if the parties fail to reach an agreement, 18 large casinos, hotels and other infrastructure in Las Vegas will be under threat of closure.
Based on the potential number of participants, this strike could become the largest in the history of the US hospitality industry.
