(Reuters) – The unions representing hospitality workers in Las Vegas said on Thursday they have reached a tentative deal with MGM Resorts International for a new contract covering 25,400 employees, a day before a strike threatened to shut down the Strip.

The agreement, which averts a strike at eight MGM properties, comes a day after rival Caesars Entertainment reached its own agreement with 10,000 Strip workers.
