Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - Over 1,200 Republic Services employees and members of Teamsters Local 631 voted to authorize a strike at Republic Services on Tuesday.
95% of participating members voted in favor of the strike after weeks of contract negotiations with the company.
If a contract is not agreed on soon, businesses and communities in Las Vegas could see a major disruption in trash hauling, according to the union.
The current contract in place expires May 31, and Republic Services will continue to negotiate with Teamsters Local 631 later this month. Republic Services employs nearly 1,400 people in southern Nevada.
