LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- With a vote on a possible strike just a few days away, union workers at the Stratosphere Hotel, Casino & Tower have reached a tentative five-year contract with the hotel.

The Culinary and Bartenders Unions’ negotiating committee announced the deal Saturday.

The previous contract expired on June 1, 2013, and the Stratosphere agreement follows settlements with MGM Resorts last fall and with Caesars Entertainment, Riviera, Tropicana, and Treasure Island earlier this year. The settlements have kept wages basically unchanged while providing more money for workers' health care needs.

Negotiations continue with the companies where contracts have expired, including Fremont, Main Street Station, LVH, Four Queens, Binion’s, Plaza, Las Vegas Club, The D, Golden Nugget, El Cortez, Golden Gate, Brady Linen Services and Margaritaville.

A strike authorization vote is scheduled for all unsettled houses on Thursday at the Cashman Center. If the vote passes, the union may call a strike against any of the companies without a contract at any time.
