Culinary union working to find temporary jobs for casino workers
Thursday 16th April 2020
UNITE HERE culinary union has partnered with the United Food and Commercial Workers union to help members find temporary jobs during the COVID-19 crisis.
This comes as nearly all of the roughly 60,000 members of Las Vegas' Culinary Union Local 226 -- a UNITE HERE affiliate -- are without work during the statewide casino shutdown.
"Employers across the valley are looking to fill positions immediately," according to an alert sent out to members.
Members of Las Vegas' UFCW Local 711 work in "dozens of industries," according to the union's website, including retail food, meat packing plants, chemical and manufacturing, food processing, department stores, textile plants, poultry processing, banks, health care and professional services.
Open jobs in Las Vegas, New York City, Atlantic City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Seattle and the Bay Area can be found at http://lil.ms/3uv5/6h6sv6.
