Casino Union Reaches Tenative Deal
Atlantic City’s main casino workers’ union has reached a tentative deal on a new contract with the two Trump casinos.
Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union shook hands Thursday on a three-year pact with Trump Entertainment Resorts. The company owns the Taj Mahal Casino Resort and Trump Plaza Hotel Casino.
Terms were not immediately revealed. Union members will vote on whether to ratify the contract on Friday. A contract reached last month with the four Caesars Entertainment casinos — Caesars, Bally’s, Harrah’s and the Showboat — kept workers from taking pay cuts or contributing to their insurance or pension costs.
