The Culinary Union says the five-year deal covers 1,500 workers, including housekeepers, bartenders, cocktail servers and others.   

The union on Monday said the workers will soon vote to ratify the proposed contract. It includes wage increases and protections against sexual harassment.   

The workers' contract expired this spring. They were among the thousands of Las Vegas casino workers who authorized a strike in May after a lack of progress on negotiations.   

The union is still negotiating agreements for workers at the D and Golden Gate hotel-casinos in downtown Las Vegas.   

Hundreds of workers last month marched down the city's Fremont Street entertainment district and rallied outside the D to demand new contracts.
