LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Culinary and Bartenders unions in Las Vegas say they plan to strike at downtown casinos next month if contracts aren't reached.

Union officials said Wednesday that workers are prepared to walk off the job at 5 a.m. June 1 at The D, Four Queens, Fremont, Main Street Station, El Cortez, Binion's, Golden Gate, The Plaza, and Las Vegas Club.

Union spokeswoman Bethany Khan says there are 2,000 union employees at the nine casinos. She says a majority of the workers at each business are members of the union.

Contracts at the casinos expired June 1, 2013.

The Golden Nugget casino downtown reached a five-year agreement with the union last month, and negotiations with El Cortez, Fremont and Main Street casinos are scheduled in advance of the planned strike.
