Unions For Workers At Detroit Casinos Reach Tentative Deal

DETROIT (AP) - Unions representing workers at Detroit's three casinos have reached a tentative contract agreement that would cover about 7,000 workers.

The Detroit Free Press reports the Detroit Casino Council, a consortium of four unions, reached the deal Sunday with Greektown Casino, MGM Grand Detroit and MotorCity Casino.

Joe Daugherty, president of Unite Here Local 24, tells the newspaper in an email details about the agreement will be shared with union members at informational meetings.

The deal is subject to a ratification vote by workers.

The Detroit Casino Council had said health care, bonuses and wage increases were among the key issues that were part of the final negotiations.

The negotiations were closely watched by Detroit leaders because of the high volume of tourism and tax revenue generated by the casinos.
