New union website critical of Caesars Entertainment

The union behind the old casinoleaks-Macau website has turned its attention to Caesars Entertainment Corp. of Las Vegas with a new site called Caesars-Insider.

The International Union of Operating Engineers appears to be using the website to pressure Caesars in contract talks, charging on the site Monday that Caesars has refused to offer new economic terms and that has left its members working for wages that have been frozen for more than four and a half years.

The union says it represents more than 350 maintenance engineers and slot machine technicians on the Strip at Caesars Palace, Paris, Bally's, Flamingo and Harrah's.

The new site appears to be set up to criticize Caesars with reports about lawsuits involving high rollers in credit disputes with Caesars casinos, executive salaries at the company and health inspection reports for the company's properties.

A message for comment was placed with Caesars and the union about the new site.

The Washington, D.C-based Operating Engineers earlier ran the casinoleaks-Macau website highlighting alleged organized crime ties to Macau casinos, many of which are operated by Las Vegas companies. That site was recently taken down without explanation.

  1. It is a shame the workers are union and can not be compensated individually for their performance like normal companies do. The all or none mentality make the good workers suffer.

  2. Union workers suffer while union bosses get richer.
