When Station Casinos subcontracts restaurants and departments, workers lose their jobs with the company. When Union casinos subcontract operations, existing workers keep their jobs and their benefits. The only thing that really changes is the name of their employer.
Hear from Lorraine what happened when her casino subcontracted her restaurant to an outside company. Lorraine has worked at downtown’s Golden Gate Casino’s Shrimp Bar & Deli for 30 years. Last month, a new company called Du-par’s took over her deli and coffee shop. Lorraine will tell you that she and her co-workers not only retained their jobs, but that those jobs stayed essentially the same despite the change in employer because of their Union contract.
