After two days of voting, a majority of employees at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas have chosen to unionize.
The workers would be represented by the Culinary Workers Union Local 226 and the Bartenders Union Local 165 of UNITE HERE. More than 500 employees were eligible to vote in the election, which took place Dec. 4-5. The unions reported the election result in a press release Monday, but the National Labor Relations Board still needs to ratify it.
Alma Zamarin, a food server at the property, said in a statement that she is "proud" to work at the hotel but that she and her coworkers "need fair wages, good benefits, and job security."
