Resorts, Union Sign Contract
One of the longest and most bitter labor disputes in Atlantic City is over.
Resorts Casino Hotel has signed a contract with the main casino workers’ union, ending a more than two-year dispute that included picketing on the Boardwalk and a pressure campaign by Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union to have other unions cancel their conventions at Resorts.
Both sides signed off on the deal in late December, but did not reveal the pact until this week.
A Resorts spokeswoman says the deal is essentially the same as those signed by other casinos.
Nine of the city’s 12 casinos have labor deals with Local 54. The Tropicana, the Borgata and Revel do not.
