ATLANTIC CITY -- Atlantic City's Trump Taj Mahal casino has given its striking union workers an ultimatum: Accept the company's health care offer by Monday or it's gone.

Tony Rodio, president of Tropicana Entertainment, which runs the Taj Mahal for billionaire Carl Icahn, sent a letter to Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union Wednesday urging it to accept the casino's last offer that would have restored health care, but not to the extent the union wanted.

The union was weighing a response Wednesday afternoon.

The ultimatum came after union members held rallies in New York against Icahn and Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee who no longer owns the casino.

The union has been on strike against the Taj Mahal since July 1. The casino remains open.
