AC casinos lay off over 300 workers

Atlantic City casinos have processsed their seasonal layoff somewhat earlier in the season than usual.  Over 300 casino workers are being fired at the Revel and the Trump casinos. Most of the workers knew they were on seasonal work duty and were to be laid off at some point, but they did not expect this to happen so early and so close to Labor Day.

Local 54, Atlantic City's biggets casino-related union, are criticizing the actions taken by Revel (which they don't represent by the way) and they're practice of using part-time employers. The situation has opened the door to new contract negotiations in the casino industry with some of the 11 casinos which Local 54 represents.
