You can bet on it: the Horseshoe Baltimore Casino is now officially union. The cards were counted last week and a strong majority of Horseshoe workers voted in favor of representation by the National Gaming Workers Coalition, reported Unite Here Local 7. The Horseshoe has recognized the union and dates will soon be set for negotiations on wages, benefits and working conditions. In addition to Local 7, the Coalition includes Operating Engineers Local 37, Teamsters Local 355 and the UAW.
