    Default Parking Valets at Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Win Strong Teamster Contract

    After years of legal action in federal court, NLRB charges for unfair labor practices, and numerous protests and rallies, valet parking attendants at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas voted unanimously this week to approve their first Teamster contract. The agreement provides a substantial wage increase, a Teamsters pension plan, and a health and welfare plan paid in full by the employer.

    “This contract is a victory for our parking valet members at Hard Rock and it’s a victory for all Teamsters in Local 986,” said Chris Griswold, Secretary-Treasurer of Local 986. “For eight long years these workers stood together and withstood management’s anti-union tactics and delays. Their endurance and solidarity is an inspiration to Teamsters everywhere.”

    In 2009, the valet parking attendants voted for representation with Teamsters Local 986. Hotel management waged an aggressive anti-union campaign that lasted more than eight years but the workers never lost their faith or their strength to fight. They were supported by the leadership of Chris Griswold, Carin Zelenko from the IBT Capital Strategies Department and General President Jim Hoffa.

    Money talks: Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel workers win Teamster contract

    LAS VEGAS — Since 2009, valet parkers at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas pursued getting a Teamster contract to protect themselves. This year, they finally got it done.

    After voting in Teamsters Local 986 in 2010, the union achieved a first contract in early 2018, but only after a legacy of National Labor Relations Board charges, demonstrations, letters, flyers, more charges and federal court hearings. Year after year after year.

    Along the way, the NLRB and the federal courts used the Hard Rock case, in 2011, to expand workers’ rights for everyone, by restricting when an owner of a restaurant inside a casino could restrict off-duty workers’ hand-billing elsewhere in the facility.

    What finally worked in getting the contract was simple. Call it the power of the purse. Just threaten to pull several hundred million dollars of investment money away from the Hard Rock’s owner, Brookfield Asset Management.

    Following a letter from Teamsters Secretary-Treasurer Ken Hall to Brookfield investors decrying the hotel/casino owner’s anti-worker machinations, the message headed out to East Coast Teamster officials Gregory Floyd and Patricia Stryker of Local 237.
