LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Union negotiators have struck contract deals with more downtown Las Vegas casinos, but the threat of a strike at one hotel remains.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal and KLAS-TV report that officials at Culinary Workers Local 226 and Bartenders Local 165 say workers at the Golden Gate plan to go on strike at 5 a.m. Sunday unless last-minute agreements are reached.

Union negotiators said Saturday that they reached a tentative agreement with TLC Casino Enterprises for new five-year contracts with both the Four Queens Hotel and Casino and the Binion’s Gambling Hall & Hotel. The newspaper and KLAS report the workers at the Plaza and Las Vegas Club have also reached deals.

The settlement follows earlier deals with other downtown casinos, including the Golden Nugget, Fremont, Main Street Station, El Cortez and The D.
