    Perini seeks union givebacks - By Liz Benston, Alexandra Berzon, Las Vegas Sun
    In meetings Thursday, Perini Chief Executive Craig Shaw and top executives of the CityCenter and Cosmopolitan projects asked for $2-an-hour wage decreases from about 11,000 trades members on those jobs, say sources involved in the discussion who did not want to be identified because the meetings were confidential.

    Perini met in separate sessions with Southern Nevada Building and Construction Trades Council leaders and officials of the local carpenters and operating engineers unions.

    In addition to wage concessions, Perini asked both groups to give up raises of about $1.75 to $3 an hour set to take effect over the summer for many trades. They also asked that workers stop taking 15-minute breaks in the mornings, sources said.
