Atlantic City Council has passed a resolution in support of casino workers in their ongoing quest for a fair wage and “to urge casino employers to raise wages and staffing and negotiate in good faith.”


Councilman Kaleem Shabazz also held a news conference in support of casino workers and their union, Unite Here Local 54. “Our hope is there doesn’t have to be a strike. Workers need to make livable wages,” he said.

Last week members of the union authourised their negotiating committee to call a July 1 strike against Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa and the three casinos owned by Caesars Entertainment and a July 3 strike against Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Atlantic City if new contracts are not in place by then.

This decision would include the prospect of disrupting the Fourth of July weekend, which is typically one of the busiest of the year for Atlantic City’s casinos.
