Caesars Casino dealers in Vegas have a stronger voice than ever before.
“Nearly 550 gaming dealers at Caesars Palace Las Vegas Casino voted to join the UAW on Saturday, the Detroit-based labor union reports.
The move comes after more than 1,470 gaming dealers from Bally’s, Harrah’s, Paris and the Wynn casinos voted to become members of the UAW last week.
The Caesars Palace decision came after a 371-12 vote.
‘We welcome these workers into the UAW family and look forward to getting down to business and bargaining great contracts.’ said Vance Pearson, director of UAW Region 5, said in a news release from UAW.
‘We are thrilled to have Caesars Palace gaming dealers vote to be allowed to join what are now over 10,000 casino workers in the UAW,’ said Gary Jones, president of the UAW, in the release. ‘In just this past week the UAW has welcomed over 2,000 new Las Vegas casino workers.'”
