Local 501 Contracts

IUOE Local 501 has secured improved compensation and working conditions in collective bargaining agreements for maintenance engineers and slot technicians on the Las Vegas Strip – including at the Bellagio and the Mirage, two resorts previously run by Steve Wynn. With the current organizing effort, Local 501 aims to lift the standards for safety, training and compensation for engineers and slot techs throughout the greater Las Vegas area.


Local 501 members working at most properties on the Las Vegas Strip receive an ANNUAL BONUS from their employer for various licenses and certifications earned at Local 501’s Las Vegas training center.

Members have an opportunity to earn over $2,000 CASH PER YEAR for these license and certification bonuses.
