Tropicana dealers authorize strike

March 2, 2009 3:14:44 AM PST
Casino dealers at the Tropicana Casino and Resort have voted overwhelmingly to authorize a strike, but haven't set a date for a walkout. And the dealers, members of the United Auto Workers, say they will continue to report to work as usual.

The union members made their decision in balloting held Friday and Saturday, but vote totals were not immediately available on Monday. It came about a month after similar strike authorization vote by slot technicians at the casino, who also are represented by the UAW and still remain on the job.

Dealers told The Press of Atlantic City that Tropicana officials have maintained a "callous attitude" during negotiations.

Tropicana spokeswoman Diane Spiers declined comment, citing company policy against discussing contract negotiations.
