Dealers at Caesars Atlantic City voted to join the United Auto Workers (UAW) Union on March 19, followed closely by Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino dealers on April 1. Workers at Trump Marina have also petitioned the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to request an election.
The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, a group that fights “compulsory unionism abuses,” tried to block the vote at Trump Plaza by filing an unfair labor practice complaint with the NLRB. The foundation alleged that U.S. Rep. Robert Andrews (D-NJ) and the UAW tampered with the election by holding a rally the week before the vote where organizers staged a symbolic count of union authorization cards. The foundation said the count “impersonated” the NLRB’s process, charges Andrews called “absurd.”
The dealers seek better pay and benefits, seniority rights and fairer treatment.
Final note: There's been an upsurge nationwide in union activity, and New Jersey is no exception. Plus, employees may be worried about job security now that Pennsylvania is quickly moving into the gambling industry.
