Casino union to protest pay cuts at Resorts

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - July 28, 2011

Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union says the Thursday evening protest could draw thousands of casino workers and their supporters to the Boardwalk.

Resorts co-owner Dennis Gomes says reducing expenses was essential to keep the struggling casino open.

The union's contracts with nine of Atlantic City's 11 casinos expire in September, and the protest is seen as a union show of force before bargaining begins.
