Statement by President Biden on the Interim Agreement between the Culinary Union, MGM Resorts, Caesars Entertainment and Wynn Resorts

Congratulations to culinary unions and bartenders who have worked together in good faith for an agreement that gives all workers the quality of life they deserve. Las Vegas has a long history of unions, and workers have been essential to the city’s growth and success. All workers – including hospitality workers – should have good jobs with fair wages and benefits that allow them to support themselves and their families. As a presidential candidate, I had the honor of joining Culinary Union members on the line and standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the men and women who make up the backbone of a city that brings joy to millions around the world. These workers understand better than anyone that a job is about more than just a paycheck. It’s about dignity. It’s about respect. Most importantly, it’s about being able to look your child in the eye and say, ‘Honey, it’s going to be okay.’ Union members made it clear that one job should be enough. Culinary Union members will have the final say on this tentative deal, and there are still Las Vegas workers in negotiations who deserve a fair deal. But the sacrifices made by hospitality workers, auto workers, actors, teamsters, writers, dock workers, railroad workers, and healthcare workers are the driving force behind a growing movement to ensure workers receive a fair share of the value they’ve helped create. This agreement will help give all workers the quality of life they deserve.
