Employees vote for union at AC's Revel

Posted: Updated:
The employees at Atlantic City's newest casino have voted to join a union.

Revel employees voted late Friday night to join Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union.

In a statement to NBC40, Revel President Scott Kreeger says, "Revel supports our team members’ right to unionize and respects their decision.  Moving forward, we hope to foster a good relationship and work productively with Local 54 as the collective bargaining process begins."

Revel had been Atlantic City's only non-union casino since its 2012 opening.

About 80 percent of the workers who cast ballots voted to join the union.

Revel is struggling to compete in the cutthroat northeast casino market, and has lost money ever since it opened. The $2.4 billion casino is seeking a buyer or a joint venture partner, but hasn't ruled out a second bankruptcy filing.
