Teamsters Local 251 announced on Thursday that it had approved a contract with Bally's.

Workers at Bally’s Twin River Casino have secured a new contract that is due to include a number of benefits. 

The contract was agreed with Bally’s Twin River Casino by Teamsters Local 251, who represent workers across Rhode Island and South Eastern Massachusetts, and was announced on Thursday. 

Within the contract, which is five years in length, it will include: wage increases, Teamsters health care and coverage for all workers under the New England Teamers Trucking and Industry Pension fund, according to the Union.

This new contract applies to around 35 maintenance workers and valets at the casino, says the Union. 

Business Agent at Teamsters Local 251 Thomas Salvatore, gave his thoughts, “We have fought for these gains for generations at the Twin River property. The change in tenor and the relationship with Bally’s, who recently started managing the property, has sent our members and the community the right signal.  

“We are grateful to have delivered such large gains for our members.” 

Back in April, Bally’s Twin River Casino, located in Lincoln, opened 40,000 square feet of new gaming space in an expansion project which included 355 slot machines, 57 tables games, 27 stadium-style games, a high-limit gaming area, a waterfall, a food hall that seats 150 guests, a private dining area with exterior views, a 16-seat casino bar and a cigar lounge with access to an outdoor smoking patio.

Michael Hershman - Dispelling casino 'myths:' New York needs to lose fear of the unknown

Michael Hershman, CEO of the Soloviev Group, joins Tim Poole on the Huddle to put forward his case that the Freedom Plaza is the way to go for one of New York's casino licences. He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.

Five years ago, before the mass proliferation of social media we see today – and even before the Covid-19 pandemic – I think you would be hard pressed to find a CEO talking about “Instagrammable moments.” KPIs w...
