JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Casino workers want their employers to provide them with protective equipment and adopt tough new cleaning and social distancing policies before gambling halls reopen during the coronavirus outbreak. Union leaders and workers from Las Vegas, Atlantic City, New Orleans, and Biloxi casinos held a video press conference Tuesday and called for all workers to be tested at the casinosâ expense before returning to work. Two of the countryâs largest casino worker unions, Unite Here and the Culinary Workers Union, also laid out detailed health and safety protocols unique to each workerâs job. Companies including Wynn Resorts, Hard Rock, and Las Vegas Sands have all endorsed providing masks and gloves and embraced social distancing but the unionâs requests go deeper, asking for new procedures and commitments of time and resources to implement them.[sc name=”twitterfollow”]
