Sands Casino guards join new force in attempt to unionize
The four-year fight by Sands Casino security guards trying to become the first union in the Las Vegas Sands Corp. global empire may likely take several years longer. The 147-guard force announced this week it has broken from the Law Enforcement Employees Benevolent Association to join the Security Police Fire Professionals of America. SPFPA is a bigger, more powerful bargaining unit, but the change means guards will have to restart their process of fighting the casino to become a union, said George Bonser, a senior guard who has been leading the effort to unionize.
