Union reaches deal with 4 of 5 Atlantic City casinos

Atlantic City's main casino workers union has reached agreement with the fourth of five casinos it had been targeting for a strike this weekend.



Representatives of Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union and the Tropicana tell The Associated Press they reached agreement Thursday afternoon on a new contract.



That left only the Trump Taj Mahal facing a strike threat on Friday.



Earlier Thursday, the union reached agreement with Bally's, Caesars and Harrah's.



The union is out to recoup concessions it gave the casinos in past negotiations when the gambling halls were in worse financial shape; four of the 12 casinos shut down in 2014.



The surviving ones, with less competition, are beginning to see their finances stabilize.
