Employees to Strike at Isle Casino Pompano Park in Florida



Employees at Isle Casino Pompano Park in Florida are planning to go on strike. About 93% of the union workers at the Eldorado Resorts-owned Isle Casino Pompano Park have voted in favour of the strike.

“Employee frustration and dissatisfaction with the company’s constant reductions to staff levels and amenities for guests led to Saturday’s vote,” according to the statement.

Reno-based Eldorado purchased the property from Isle of Capri Casinos in May 2017. Shortly after, more than 80 union employees were laid off, according to the statement.

The plan to strike comes shortly after UNITE HERE voiced dissatisfaction with Eldorado for its acquisition plans with Caesars Entertainment Corp.

Last Month, Eldorado announced plans for a $17.3 billion deal to buy Caesars, which would create the largest casino company by gaming assets. Shortly after the announcement, UNITE HERE president D. Taylor said the union “will not stand by idly” if the deal leads to significant job losses.
