Last-minute deal averts casino strike in Atlantic City

The main union for Atlantic City casino workers reached agreements on new contracts with four casinos on Thursday. The deals avoid a possible strike on the Fourth of July weekend. A Sunday strike deadline remains against the Hard Rock casino. Union president calls it the best contract they've ever had. It's not yet clear what the exact amount is. The settlements come at a crucial time for the casino industry. They have won $1.8 billion over the first five months of this year. That's up more than 49% from the same period in 2019. In 2016, the union rejected a proposal by billionaire Carl Icahn to operate without health care and pension benefits at the Trump Taj Mahal casino, which was later sold to Hard Rommate International.
