UPDATE 10 P.M.: Station Casinos recently announced an enhanced team member benefits program, available at its twenty properties located throughout the Las Vegas valley.

As a part of its enhanced “Family Focused” initiative, the company is providing benefits to its team members and further enhancing their quality of life by introducing free healthcare and a custom 401(k) program.

“Station Casinos is a family run business and our Team Members are like family to us, and we are always looking for ways to make our company an enjoyable and rewarding place to work and looking for ways to attract the best candidates to our properties,” said Bob Finch, executive vice president and chief operating officer of the company. “We are excited to offer our Team Members great healthcare and retirement options so that they and their families are taken care of. Our Family Focused initiative will truly benefit our Team Members and further enhance our position as the best place to work in Las Vegas.”

Culinary Union members have gathered in front the Palms to picket for a contract.

Those on the picket line claim workers do not have good family healthcare and retirement benefits, job security or a grievance process.

Some traffic is impacted near Flamingo Road and Arville Street.

Nevada Department of Transportation says any lane restrictions should be lifted around noon.
