Union casino workers picketed outside the Trump Taj Mahal on Wednesday, to protest cuts to their benefits and health insurance. The Press of Atlantic City reports that it was the first protest by UNITE-HERE Local 54 since Carl Icahn took control of the Taj Mahal. The report claims Ican offered the union an alternate health package that was turned down by union officials. Local 54 workers at the seven other casinos in Atlantic City contribute to a national UNITE-HERE health fund for employees, which will be up for discussion this spring during labor negotiations with these seven casinos.
