Atlantic City Dealers join the Union.

NOW what will change for them?

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- The parent company of Caesars Atlantic City has decided not to challenge a vote by workers to form a union, granting casino dealers in Atlantic City their first union in 25 years.

The deadline for Harrah's Entertainment Inc. to challenge the unionization vote March 17 was Monday, according to the company and the United Auto Workers, which is representing nearly 900 Caesars dealers, keno and simulcast employees.

The workers voted 572-128 to become part of the UAW.

Reader input -
no, i don't think unions are good now - to many of my friends were not helped

What type of Union did you belong to?

i think the last dues i paid we about $80 a month - for what? nothing! not one darn thing - no raises no help when i had trouble with boss nothing

i thought the unions in las vegas were suppose to be good - especially those at the casinos - hah!

i try to talk people out of joining unions - all unions do is take the members money and make the mucky mucks in the union rich! our head guy drove one of those big mercedes while the workers drove broken down cars
