LAS VEGAS (AP) - Union workers from Las Vegas casinos plan to march in an upscale master-planned community in Las Vegas as part of ongoing labor protests of Station Casinos.

Culinary Workers Union Local 226 says it will march at 5 p.m. Thursday. Protesters plan to walk south from a local high school on Pavilion Center Drive to Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa. The resort is owned by Station Casinos and is also the company’s headquarters.

The union says it represents 55,000 culinary workers in the Las Vegas area. A Station Casinos spokeswoman told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that there is no labor dispute.

The march coincides with the Thursday grand opening of the long anticipated Downtown Summerlin shopping development, which sits south of the casino and opens at 10 a.m.
