Tough Economic Time For Unions To Fight For Casino Workers

The union that represents workers at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut have won the right to do so through a vote. They may now be wishing that vote went against unionization.

The union will begin negotiations with the Mashantucket Pequot tribe in representation of the workers they represent. With the economy crisis in the United States, however, it will be difficult to ask for too much from the tribe.

Although what the union is basically looking for is protection of the workers rights, there certainly will be talk of benefits and job wages. It will be a tough task to convince any casino owners to come out of their pockets these days.

The union and the tribe will have thirty days to negotiate. Neither side will give up their rights under the National Labor Relations Act. Hopefully, the two sides will be able to iron out an agreement within the next thirty days.

The Mashantucket Pequot tribe challenged the rights of their workers to unionize. The workers voted in favor of unionizing and their rights have been upheld in court. The tribe felt that Foxwoods, since it was run by a sovereign nation, did not have to worry about their workers joining a union.
