Several video clips have been posted on You Tube that show Las Vegas union that is culinary berating tourists (Image source: FOX News)
UPDATE: October 25, 2013 After the release of these videos where Culinary Union Local 226 users were seen regularly throwing epithets and verbal punishment at tourists entering the Cosmopolitan the union’s protests happen wear hold until Nov. 1. The team encompasses some 55,000 bartenders, maids and food servers in Las Vegas, and was at chances about issues such as healthcare, job security, compensation and even successorship, ie., what goes on if Cosmopolitan gets sold to another business by Deutsche Bank at some point.
The protests are costing taxpayers an average of $2,600 in extra police patrols, based on the Alliance to Protect Nevada Jobs, a group that is specialized in placing an end to the union’s assaults on tourists.
Union organizers say they will resume the actions on Nov. 1, however.
If you’re a tourist that is typical into Las Vegas, you’re most likely prepared for some financial losses, maybe some weight gain from all the fabulous eateries, possibly even a taxi motorist who might drive you (illegally) from your way. But what you are actually probably not prepared for is being yelled at and called derogatory names simply for entering a really casino that is upscale like, say, The Cosmopolitan next to Aria on the Las Vegas Strip.
But this is the tactic that Culinary Union Local 226 has been using and several say, abusing for awhile now as they continue steadily to negotiate with Cosmopolitan’s management, Deutsche Bank, in what has now dragged on into a two-year ongoing mess until a deal could be finalized between the two parties.
