Union dealers at Atlantic City casinos still lack contracts

 Dealers at the Atlantic City casinos won the right to unionize, but months after the victory none of the unions has succeeded in getting a contract with any of the gambling establishments. Because of that, a group of workers, elected officials and labor officials held a rally Wednesday to call on the casinos to bargain fairly with the unions. The United Auto Workers (UAW) union has won representation elections at Caesars, Bally's, the Tropicana Casino and Resort, and Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, but lost elections at Trump Marina Hotel Casino and the Atlantic City Hilton Casino Resort. According to the union, it plans to organize the workers at all of the Atlantic City's eleven casinos, but talks with some casinos are moving slow, while others have not even began negotiations. Among the main issues the union is seeking to negotiate are salaries, job security, more full-time jobs and better health care coverage for part-time workers at the casinos.
