All full-time table games dealers at Wynn Las Vegas have become members of the United Automobile, Aerospace, and Agricultural Implements Workers of America (UAW) labor union.
Kanie Kastroll, a spokesperson of Wynn Las Vegas table game dealers, made this revelation that her colleagues voted in favor of joining UAW.
The table games dealers ratified a three-year contract with UAW that has numerous job assurances over the next 36 months. That includes not being forced to share their tips with management or any other Wynn Las Vegas worker.
“The stipulation is of paramount importance to many veteran Wynn table dealers. In March, Wynn Resorts agreed to settle a 15 year legal battle with current and former table game dealers over tip disputes.”
In 2006, Wynn Resorts founder Steve Wynn implemented a policy requiring table game dealer’s share 12 percent of their tips with pit supervisors and immediate management. Dealers filed lawsuits in 2013 and 2018 to seek a refund of the money.
Wynn Resorts agreed to pay $5.6 million for the lost dealers’ tips which were equivalent to $4, 200 per dealer. The UAW table dealer contract involves Wynn Resorts workers in Las Vegas. According to Las Vegas Review-Journal, the contract will allow the represented workers to pursue future contract amendments more speedily.
