Casino Service Workers Strike

Casino Service Workers Strike Service workers at seven Atlantic City casino hotels are on strike Friday morning.

That means it will likely take longer to get room service, order a drink or have the room cleaned.

The strike does not involve dealers and those who run the games of chance.

About 10,000 bell captains, bartenders, pastry chefs and maids are putting on picket signs after their union and the casinos failed to reach agreements.

Local 54 of the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees union reached a tentative deal late last night with Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts, averting a strike at Trump Taj Mahal, Trump Marina and Trump Plaza.

But the union members -- from bell captains to bartenders, pastry chefs to porters -- walked off the job at Harrah's Atlantic City, Showboat Hotel-Casino, Bally's Atlantic City, Caesars Atlantic City, the Atlantic City Hilton, Resorts Atlantic City, and the Tropicana Casino and Resort.

Unaffected will be the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa, which struck its own four-year contract with Local 54 last year, and the Sands Hotel and Casino, which has agreed to abide by the union's first contract agreement.
