Foxwoods Workers Reject Union In Yesterday's Vote

Feather News


Foxwoods dealers voted in favor of the United Auto Workers for representation last November but yesterday other workers, among them those working in the facilities and engineering departments, rejected the International Operating Engineers union in a vote of 215-67.

The National Labor Relations Board oversaw yesterday's voting of workers from five departments.

The Mashantucket Pequot Tribe, which owns the Foxwoods casino, is disputing the right of unions to negotiate on behalf of workers at the casino.
