SugarHouse Casino workers plan to unionize

    Three unions and four religious workers joined SugarHouse Casino workers today as they delivered a letter to management informing the casino of their plans to unionize.

    City Paper stopped by the casino and published the letter, which reads in part: “Today we stand beside the workers at SugarHouse Casino as they demand the company respect their signatures and agree to a fair process whereby they may organize a union freely and without management intimidation or retaliation.”

    Unite Here!, Laborers International Union of North America and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters were the unions present.
