grayhair Posted August 3, 2016 Share Posted August 3, 2016 (edited) The union was not willing for the Taj workers to have to pay more for their health insurance that what workers at other Atlantic City casino pay for theirs. So a strike at peak summertime season is the final straw for owners. Besides the 3000 jobs the union is effectively cancelling, there is also the various contractor jobs. HVAC is contracted out. Boiler operating is contracted out to another company. Restaurants that operate within the hotel but owned by others. The really sad part is that persons working there that would like to be able to keep their jobs had no say in the matter. The decision was made for them by the union. I don't see anyone benefiting from the union's decision. Those workers that lost their jobs have mortgages, kids to raise, etc. Now, the job isn't there for them even if the benefits were going to be skinny. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/08/03/trump-taj-mahal-casino-shutting-down.html Edited August 3, 2016 by grayhair Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
