One day after a protest at Donald Trump's Las Vegas hotel, the Culinary union has announced a settlement with Donald Trump (and co-owner Phil Ruffin)  of a labor complaint.

From the Culinary union release (more to come if Trump hotel will comment):

Trump International Hotel Las Vegas has agreed to settle a case and pay two workers $11,200 in lost wages to avoid going to trial after the National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) general counsel issued a complaint on March 2, 2016. The complaint alleged the company fired a union supporter and denied a transfer to a full-time job to another, while promising more job opportunities to workers if they abandoned their support for the Union.  The trial was set to start on June 14 before an Administrative Law Judge of the NLRB.

Within 14 days from approval of this agreement, the Charged Party will make whole the employee(s) named below by payment to each of them of the amount opposite each name,” according to the terms of the settlement agreement negotiated by NLRB Field Attorney Judith E. Dávila on behalf of the government.
