Picket at Ameristar

4.25 action photo

Dozens of hearty souls braved the cold, rain and wind on Saturday April 25th to picket outside Ameristar. Casino workers were joined by union brothers and sisters from the striking BP Oil Workers, the Northwest Indiana Federation of Labor, and downtown Chicago hotels. The servers, bartenders, cleaners, and bussers of the casino are protesting the fighting Ameristar’s plan to strip away the affordable family health insurance plan they have had for years.
