chips12.jpgLast October, we brought you the news that the United Auto Workers (UAW) was attempting to organize a union vote at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut. As a part of an effort to broaden their base in the face of declining membership in the automotive industry, the UAW was hoping to organize the casino’s 3k dealers. Well, in November, the dealers dealt Foxwoods management (i.e. the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe) a new hand by voting in favor of representation by the UAW. Soon after, Foxwoods sought to overturn the results of the voting, but a Connecticut judge rejected that appeal. Now The Hartford Courant reports some 300 workers (mostly engineering types and interior landscapers) have voted against joining the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE). As with casino gambling, sometimes you win, and sometimes (okay, most of the time) you lose.
