Resorts Casino agrees labour agreement with Atlantic City workers union

Resorts Casino has reached a labour agreement with Atlantic City’s main casino workers union, leaving just Golden Nugget without a new pay agreement for its workers.

Golden Nugget will, however, sit down with Local 54 of the Unite Here Union at some point this week, in an attempt to land an agreement.  

The threat of strikes in the city has loomed for the past two months, but since Hard Rock agreed to a deal with Local 54 of the Unite Here Union, that prospect has diminished as more and more operators negotiated new payment deals for workers, as an early July strike deadline drew near.

The Resorts Casino agreed to the same financial terms as Atlantic City’s larger casinos, including Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Caesars & Harrah’s. This is according to Unite Here Union President Bob McDevitt. 

However, Bally’s and Ocean Casino Resort have agreed to alternative “me too” deals, committing themselves to adopt the terms of contracts reached by other operators in Atlantic City. 

Per the deal, housekeeping employees will receive a pay increase to $22 an hour, should they remain at the same company for four years.  

Resorts President Mark Giannantonio said: “It’s a great deal. We’re thrilled for the employees. They’ve been working really hard for us, and now we’re happy we can put this behind us and move forward with our business.” 

Resorts opened in Atlantic City in 1978 and was the first US casino property to open outside of Nevada.
