Earlier this year, Local 1 President, Karen Kent, named 2015 the “Year of the Casino Worker in Local 1.” Karen’s charge is one that’s been taken throughout Indiana and Illinois Riverboat organizing. Casinos workers are coming together to fight for a fair contract Ameristar Casino , to support workers organizing at Rivers Casino in Des Plaines, Illinois, and strengthen union casinos throughout the region.
