Local 54 of the UNITE HERE union says the city erred when it decided last month not to put two referenda on the ballot.
Twenty-one Tropicana Casino employees, who were recently reinstated from a suspension resulting from their involvement in a traffic-blocking protest last month, were out on the picket line again Saturday.
Atlantic City’s largest union is seeking to put a pair of referendums on the ballot that would appear to target the city’s newest casino.
Thousands of Local 54 union members rallied at Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City.
“They want to treat regular, front line workers as if they’re professional athletes but they want to pay them like they’re hot dog vendors,” union president Bob McDevitt says.
“The threat is, if we’re picketing without a permit that they’re going to arrest people. So there’s a possibility of mass arrests,” says Local 54 president Bob McDevitt.
Labor contracts between Atlantic City’s largest union and nine casinos are due to expire in one month and Local 54 is negotiating a new contract with another.
Members of Atlantic City’s largest labor union are taking the Christie Administration to court over tax breaks being granted to a mega casino project.
