On Thursday, September 30, at 6:30 p.m. The Neon Museum will host the panel discussion “Remembering the Frontier Strike: 30 Years Later.” In September 1991, one of the longest labor strikes in U.S. history began as workers with the Culinary Union and others staged a strike at the Frontier Hotel and Casino in response to cuts in benefits and compensation. In February 1998, the dispute was settled in labor’s favor after the ownership of the hotel changed. The strike lasted a total of six years, four months, and ten days. Join us for an insightful discussion as we reflect on the lasting impact of this successful struggle for decent wages and benefits in Las Vegas.

Panelists include historian Maribel Estrada Calderon; Geoconda Argüello-Kline, Secretary-Treasurer, Culinary Workers Local 226; Mary Burns, Frontier striker; Gloria Hernandez, Chaplain, Culinary Workers Local 226; and moderator Claytee White, Director, Oral History Research Center at UNLV.

 A recording of the program will be available at a later date.
