Resorts Casino signs new union agreement
Resorts Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, has reached a new agreement with the casino workers union. The Golden Nugget remains the last casino in the region without one.
Resorts Casino has signed a new union agreement. The housekeeping employees will get a pay increase to $22 an hour by the time the four-year contract is over. There are also fully funded family health care plans and pension benefits. Golden Nugget has until July 30 to sign a contract. If it doesn't, the union has authorized a strike.
Resorts Casino and Golden Nugget's contracts were voided at the end of May. Hard Rock Casino, Tropicana, Harrah's, Caesar's and Borgata were facing a strike in early July. Bally's signed a 'me-too' agreement with Ocean Casino Resort.
