Another Group of Foxwoods Workers Rejects Union

Fxwd1 We've posted before on the battle between the NLRB and Mashantucket Pequot Tribe Nation's sovereign immunity claim that the NLRA does not apply to Foxwoods casino.  Daniel Schwartz at the Connecticut Employment Law Blog has an update on some recent developments.  Despite previous victories, engineering and off-track betting workers have both recently voted against unionization--in both cases by a significant margin.  Neither unit was necessarily representative of all workers, but the question remains whether this signals a more substantive shift in opinion among Foxwoods workers.

The legal battle involving game dealers is still pending before the NLRB, so it will be a while before we get an answer on that.  But, things on the ground are obviously taking some interesting turns, so stay tuned.
