Contract Victories – Maintain Healthcare Coverage

Management and union members at Hollywood Casino in Joliet, IL and Blue Chip Casino in Michigan City, IN have agreed to union contracts that keep the union health insurance plan which Ameristar Casino refuses to provide.

 

November 24th, 2015, union members at Hollywood Casino voted on and successfully ratified a 4 year contract which will keep the union health insurance.

 

December 9th, 2015, union members at Blue Chip Casino voted on and successfully ratified a new contract which will keep the union health insurance plan, and will allow dozens of members, who were previously not receiving its benefits, to enroll in the union health insurance plan in 2017.

 

This shows that it is possible to ensure casino workers in the area have a union health insurance plan. Why won’t Ameristar provide a union health insurance plan for its union members?
