Foxwoods, union contract talks near 1-year mark

Posted: Updated:

MASHANTUCKET, Conn. (AP) - Nearly a year after the previous labor agreement expired, Foxwoods Resort Casino and unionized dealers are still negotiating for a new contract.

Local 2121 of the UAW says on its website that health care costs, pay raises and cleaner air in the casino are among the issues it is pushing. It says Foxwoods is demanding health insurance cost increases, a 3-year wage freeze and the right to stop 401(k) match for employees for a year.

The Day of New London reports that neither side is talking about the negotiations for a pact to replace the one that expired on Dec. 31, 2011. It took 14 months to reach that agreement.

Revenue has been falling at Foxwoods and nearby Mohegan Sun due to the weak economy and rising casino competition.
