Bally’s reaches deal with unions over Chicago casino
Bally’s signed the deal with the Chicago & Cook County Building & Construction Trades Council (CCBT) and the AFL-CIO Building and Construction Trades Department. The CCBT is an AFL-CIO affiliated labour organisation, representing 100,000 people from 23 affiliated construction trade organisations.
“CCBT is proud to stand with Bally’s Chicago in this historic building of the first and only casino in the City of Chicago,” said CCBT president Michael Macellaio. “With this agreement, Bally’s shows that it understands the importance of good-paying jobs in our city and the dignity of our hard-working people.”
In May, the city council of Chicago chose Bally’s to build the city’s sole casino in a competitive bidding process that also included Rush Street Gaming and Hard Rock.
