Atlantic City’s Unions Are Not Down With Revel’s ‘Term Limits’

Back in January we told you Revel was ruffling organized labor’s feathers in Atlantic City by employing some questionable hiring practices. New hires there, and only there were subject to four to six year “term limits,” which stoked the ire of Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union, which represents many of the gambling destination’s casino workers. In response they launched a petition to force a public vote on Revel’s hiring policy this fall. That, according to CBS Philly, was shot down last week by a city clerk, because it “improperly tied the hands of the City Council and did not have enough signatures.” Now the union’s firing back, saying it indeed has enough votes, and will go to court to prove it, and push for a referendum to appear on November’s ballot. We suspect that this blow-up won’t be the last, and that it’s going to be a very bumpy ride leading up to this fall’s vote. [CBS Philly]
