THEY’VE TAKEN THEIR SHARE...Station Casinos will tell you it’s time to celebrate now because it is coming out of bankruptcy soon. It is indeed time to celebrate for some people.
STATION EXECUTIVES will not have to give back the hundreds of millions of dollars they got from the 2007 buyout that caused the company to go bankrupt. And they will most likely keep their jobs even after the bankruptcy reorganization.
THEIR WALL STREET BACKERS — Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan Chase — will not give back the hundreds of millions of dollars in interest payments they have collected from Station since the buyout. And, after the bankruptcy reorganization, they will own half the company and continue to collect hundreds of millions of dollars in interest from Station!
...IT’S OUR TURN NOW! WE WANT WHAT UNION CASINO WORKERS IN LAS VEGAS HAVE!
- GUARANTEED RAISES. We haven’t gotten a raise from Station Casinos for three years now. On the Strip, Union housekeepers got a total raise of over $1.20 per hour and Union food servers got more than $0.60 an hour since we got our last raise.
- GENEROUS HEALTH CARE PLAN. No paycheck deductions to cover you, your spouse, and your children through the largest network of providers in Las Vegas. Domestic partners covered. Pre-existing conditions covered. Includes dental, vision, and prescription benefits, with a free pharmacy. Even part-time workers are covered.
- GUARANTEED PENSION. No paycheck deductions. You’re paid a pension no matter how long you live. Benefits are paid for entirely by your employer and are guaranteed by the government. In addition, you can add to your retirement income by investing in your own 401(k).
- JOB SECURITY. The company cannot get rid of your job by replacing it with an outside company like Station did with its coffee shops and uniform rooms.
