Union workers have reached a tentative agreement with Tropicana Las Vegas on a new labor contract, a spokeswoman said Tuesday.

The five-year contract will cover more than 730 workers at the hotel-casino owned by Penn National Gaming, according to the Culinary Union.

The contract includes language covering worker security, as well as wage increases and pension benefits. A ratification vote has not been scheduled yet.

Tropicana joins MGM Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, the Plaza and the Stratosphere in reaching labor agreements with the Culinary Union after contracts expired on June 1.
