Union gives to laid off, reduced hour employees

Posted: Updated:

Atlantic City's casino and restaurant employees got a little holiday help Thursday from their union.

Unite Here Local 54 distributed $50 dollar Shoprite holiday meal gift cards to thousands of their members.  Union representatives wanted to give to members who have been severely reduced in hours or have been laid off during the current holiday season.

"This money came from all over the United States from different locals in our union and we felt that it was best to distribute it in this fashion as opposed to giving cash or a check," said Bob McDevitt, President of Unite Here-Local 54

The union hopes that business will increase in the resort after the first of the year.
