LAS VEGAS (AP) - Labor officials said Tuesday that workers at the Trump International Hotel owned by the Republican presidential front-runner have officially unionized in Las Vegas - at least for now.

The National Labor Relations Board in March certified the votes from a December election that showed a majority were in favor of representation by the Culinary Union at the off-Strip property.

Trump Ruffin Commercial LLC on Monday asked for a review challenging that decision, but the certification stands unless the board decides to reconsider.

That means Nevada’s largest union now represents Trump’s 523 full-time, part-time and on-call employees in guest services, housekeeping, food and beverage in Las Vegas.

The union is now urging Trump to start contract negotiations and stop the “expansive litigation.”

Hotel officials couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
