hard rock reach deal with ac union to end the threat of strikes

The bosses at the Hard Rock Casino have come to an agreement with Local 54 of the Unite Here union in order to end the threat of strikes that have loomed for the past several weeks.

The latest of the threats promised a strike on Sunday, July 3rd, but those in charge managed to reach an agreement the day before workers took action during what is the peak tourist season for the NJ casinos.

Hard Rocks’ new contract means only two other casinos involved with Local 54 are without a deal—Resorts and Golden Nugget.

We are extremely pleased that we were once again able to reach a successful settlement with Unite Here Local 54 to increase wages and benefits for our deserving team members. We look forward to further expanding this excellent relationship at both the national and local levels as we expand our iconic brand

Jim Allen Chairman of Hard Rock International

We don’t yet have full details of what the deal means for workers, but it is known that Local 54 initially wanted an $18 per hour minimum.
