Bally`s Fires 2 Striking Workers

Bally`s Fires 2 Striking Workers Union officials say Bally's Atlantic City casino has fired two workers for strike misconduct.

One of the employees is Alberto Pena, who suffered a broken kneecap in a confrontation with guards on Sunday.

Union officials say Pena and Santos DeJesus never touched the guards. They claim they were accosted while the guards videotaped their picket line.

A casino spokeswoman has no comment.

The strike by about 10,000 members of Local 54 of the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees union will enter its second week Friday. No talks have been held since the walkout started. The union has invited casino officials to resume negotiations Friday.
