5 A.C. casinos now could face a strike
Casino workers said Thursday that they will go on strike against five of the city's eight casinos on July 1 if a contract agreement is not reached by then. Members of Local 54 of the Unite Here union voted to authorize a strike against Bally's, Caesars, Harrah's, and the Tropicana. The union had already authorized a strike against the Trump Taj Mahal. A spokesman said several thousand workers cast ballots, which were 96 percent in favor of a strike. The union says workers made painful sacrifices that need to be reversed now that Atlantic City's casinos are regaining their financial footing. Let's all hope the situation can be resolved before the big holiday weekend.
There is still time to book that summer casino party or a DJ for that big holiday barbecue.
