LAS VEGAS (AP) — Union members at several Las Vegas casinos are set to vote whether to authorize a strike if bargaining doesn't yield a new contract.

Culinary Union 226 spokeswoman Bethany Khan says voting takes place Thursday in two shifts at the East Las Vegas Community Center — from 10 a.m. to noon and from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Unionized casino workers at Binion's, El Cortez, Four Queens, Fremont, Golden Gate, Golden Nugget, Las Vegas Club, Las Vegas Plaza, Main Street Station and Margaritaville and The D are due to vote, along with linen service workers from Brady Laundries.

Results could be known later in the evening.

The union represents thousands of bartenders, food service workers, housekeepers, cooks, porters and others at casinos and properties downtown and on the Las Vegas Strip.
