MGM Mirage Fights Workers' Effort To Form Union (filed unfair labor practice charges)

Security guards for MGM Mirage in Las Vegas are seeking union representation and the company is fighting back. Jesse Russell reports:

The last time security guards at Nevadas largest casino company sought union representation was 13 years ago. That attempt was defeated when the company offered guards many of the items they would have sought when organized. Now the guards are seeking representation from the International union of Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America alleging unsafe staffing levels, low pay, and inadequate training. The union has filed unfair labor practice charges against MGM Mirage saying that the company is offering benefits and promotions to guards that vote against the union. The National Labor Relations Board plans to investigate the charges. MGM Mirage owns numerous hotels in Las Vegas including Luxor, Mandalay Bay, and The Mirage.
