The cleaners, servers, and bartenders at Ameristar Casino, East Chicago, urge you to boycott this casino until workers get a fair contract.
Ameristar has not agreed to a new contract since 2012. In 2015, Ameristar cut off the affordable union health insurance plan employees and their families have had for years. Workers are asking customers to stay away from Ameristar Casino, East Chicago, until a fair contract is settled.
As of 2018, Ameristar is operated by Penn National Gaming, Inc., a casino operation company based in Pennsylvania. Penn National has successfully reached union contracts at other casinos, including Hollywood Casino in Joliet, IL, where the contract maintains the same health insurance plan employees of Ameristar are fighting to get back.
Penn National can settle a contract at Ameristar.
