BSCAI is closely monitoring the situation regarding negotiations between the Culinary Workers and Bartenders Union and casino and resort operators MGM Resorts International, Caesars Entertainment and Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas. We are working with the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, ISSA and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Bureau to monitor all related happenings and continue to receive updates as new information becomes available regarding how the situation may affect the 2023 Contracting Success Conference. Mandalay Bay has indicated that contingency plans are in place should a labor strike happen during our event, and have assured us that they will be able to fulfill their obligations to BSCAI and to our attendees.
On Thursday, November 9, the Culinary Union, Bartenders Union and MGM Resorts International announced that they have reached a tentative agreement in a joint statement. We will continue to update our networks with the information we receive from Mandalay Bay and our partners.
