LAS VEGAS (AP) - Culinary Union officials estimate more than 1,500 people marched down the Las Vegas Strip to urge Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to start negotiating a contract with workers at his hotel.

Union spokeswoman Bethany Khan says there were no arrests at the Thursday evening demonstration the group organized.

The National Labor Relations Board recently certified a December election that showed a majority of workers at the Las Vegas luxury hotel wanted union representation. Trump’s company asked for a review challenging that decision.

Workers want talks to start now, but it could be difficult to compel Trump to come to the bargaining table anytime soon.

UNLV labor law professor Ruben Garcia said it could take years before the dispute arrives at an appeals court with power to enforce board decisions.
