Protesters shouted names at tourists, calling them "losers" and "jerks" as they walked inside the Cosmopolitan on Saturday, Oct. 5.
The Culinary Union Local 226 put on the rally as part of the ongoing negotiations between the hotel and the union to sign a deal.
The Alliance to Protect Nevada Jobs posted the video on YouTube and says they wanted to demonstrate that union protesters are compromising potential tourists from coming back to Las Vegas.
"You don't do that by calling tourists those names and berating them when they come here to spend their money in our city," said Ron Futrell, spokesman for Alliance to Protect Nevada jobs.
"You and your girlfriend are a bunch of losers … especially your girlfriend," said one protester with a bull horn.
The big thing is that most people do not realize, in the building trades unions, there is no seniority, no job security, no paid sick leave no paid vacations. We work in the worst of conditions and sometimes the best. You dont work, you dont get paid. They dont like you, get laid off
OLD HIPPY DUDE
Unions are on life support they are no threat to anyone.
To all the right wing union haters out there....
Don't watch TV or go to movies because they are all union shop.
Even your holy spokesman [on loan from God] Rush Limbaugh is a member of a union.

Here is a list of movies filmed in Canada to avoid unions.
Just saying they are not all made in union shops.
Sometimes a little research can keep us from looking like fools....
You just lost all credibility by not knowing what you are talking about.
And using a blog as evidence is so lame.
Canada has film unions just like the USA
I have worked in BC on a show under my locals contract. I also work on indy projects [no,low budget or New Media] that are non union and sign waivers to work on them. I have gladly worked for free on movies that were non union just to see them made.edit on 13-2-2014 by olaru12 because: (no reason given)
What would be funny is if the same people that bitch about the 1 % are the same people that bitch about the unions...
Not saying it is,
The big thing is that most people do not realize, in the building trades unions, there is no seniority, no job security, no paid sick leave no paid vacations.
My unions CREATED Detroit. Your corporate toadies killed it.
The citizens of this country may have been stupid for as long as YOU can remember but they weren't always stupid or we wouldn't have a country in the first place, would we? There is an enormous upside to the USA right now, if people like you will just stop giving in to your "inevitable" future. It will take a lot of work and a LOT more courage than I am seeing from the majority of people currently, but it is there and we can have it if we want it. Or we can listen to what you are saying and get in the food line.

Actually unions destroyed Detroit by demanding ridiculous salaries for menial jobs. When faced with the stupidity put forth by unions, carmakers did what every intelligent business does: They found lower costs elsewhere. If unions didnt make laughable demands, Detroit would still be a solid manufacturing center.
