Union criticizes Bally’s Twin River Casino for failing to bring employees back
| By Daniel O'Boyle
A union representing employees at Bally's Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island have expressed disapproval after they were not asked to return to work following the lifting of all novel coronavirus (Covid-19) measures in the state.
After the restrictions were lifted, Twin Rivers’ revenue reportedly increased as capacity increased at the venue.
Employees at the casino, represented by General Teamsters Local Union 251, said they wish to return to work at Twin River but had not had the option, despite the casino returning to high levels of attendance and revenue.
The union noted that many worked there several years before the pandemic.
