LAS VEGAS (AP) — Union workers at Las Vegas Strip casinos owned by Caesars Entertainment Corp. have approved a contract that preserves health benefits and adds new language to protect housekeepers from hazardous work conditions.

The new agreement also aims to bring back workers laid off when restaurants closed during the recession.

Officials with the Culinary Union Local 226 and Bartenders Union Local 165 say 97 percent of voters approved the agreement Monday.

The contract will cover more than 13,000 employees at casinos including the Flamingo, Paris, Planet Hollywood, the Quad, Caesars Palace, Bally's, Harrah's, the Rio, and the still unopened hotel that was formerly called Gansevoort Las Vegas.

Caesars is the second company to settle with the union after contracts expired citywide June 1. MGM Resorts International settled in November.
