The Local 54 Unite-HERE union was able to avoid a strike at four out of five casinos in Atlantic City this weekend. Only the Trump Taj Mahal could not reach a deal with workers, who were called away from their jobs by the union at 6 a.m. Friday and onto the picket lines. About 1,000 Local 54 union workers are now on strike at the Taj Mahal, including cooks, servers, housekeepers and luggage handlers. The strike does not affect dealers, who are expected to report for work during the strike. It is not known if the Taj Mahal will use management or temporary workers to cover for the striking employees. A Friday night concert by the rock band Whitesnake is expected to take place as planned.
