LAS VEGAS, July 13 (UPI) -- Dealers at the Rio casino in Las Vegas have rejected a proposal for union representation, officials say.

The 247-162 vote against joining Las Vegas Dealers Local 721 was the first setback for the union after successful organizing efforts at the Wynn and Caesars Palace casinos, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Sunday.

The union vote was overseen by representatives from the National Labor Relations Board.

The Las Vegas Dealers Local 721 is an affiliate of the Transport Workers Union of America, based in New York.
