The Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas reached a tentative agreement with the Culinary Union, avoiding a strike at the property.
The nearly 300 workers represented by the union gained the same contract improvements and wage increases that their counterparts won in November at MGM Resorts International, Wynn Resorts and Caesars Entertainment.
That means 10% wage increase in the first year, and a total of 32% in raises over the life of the new five-year contract.
"I'm extremely happy,” said Mariana Piper, a food server at the hotel, in a statement. “This hard work that we put in today it's gonna benefit our families and kids."
The Culinary and Bartenders Unions, known collectively as the Culinary Union, previously announced a Feb. 2 strike deadline for the Waldorf Astoria and 20 other Las Vegas resorts both on the Strip and off. Union Secretary-Treasurer Ted Pappageorge first hinted at the strike deadline earlier this month during Vice President Kamala Harris’ visit to the Culinary Union’s Las Vegas headquarters.
Members of the Culinary Union initially authorized a strike in September.
Properties still in negotiations with the union include Trump Hotel Las Vegas, Circus Circus and Treasure Island.
