TWU Wins Union Drive For Dealers at Caesars Palace

The Transport Workers Union says it won a vote count early this morning that will unionize some 565 dealers at Caesars Palace.

The union won 380 votes in favor versus 128 against in balloting that took place up until yesterday evening (Saturday).

The victory is the second for the union since organizing dealers at Wynn Las Vegas in May.

Spokesman Jamie Horwitz called the win a "blowout" and says the union is looking forward to negotiating a contract for dealers early in the new year.

A spokeswoman for Caesars' owner Harrah's Entertainment could not immediately be reached for comment.
