The main Atlantic City casino workers union has ratified a new contract with the Atlantic Club.

Workers voted overwhelmingly in favor of the deal on Monday.

Terms were similar to those in contracts reached in recent months with other Atlantic City casinos, calling for modest raises and successfully fighting off management demands that workers contribute for the first time to their pension and health insurance costs.

The three-year contract covers almost 600 cooks, housekeepers, bartenders, cocktail servers and other service workers at the Atlantic Club, which is the new name of the casino that had been known as ACH.

Local 54 of the Unite-HERE casino union now has contracts with eight of Atlantic City's 11 casinos.
