100,000 Workers Strong
UNITE HERE is the largest union of gaming workers in the world. We represent 100,000 casino workers across the United States and Canada.
UNITE HERE members have long worked in the established gaming markets of Las Vegas and Atlantic City. With expansion in the industry, UNITE HERE is also the union of gaming workers in newer jurisdictions, including California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island, as well as in Ontario and British Columbia.
Among the largest U.S. gaming companies, UNITE HERE represents significant numbers of workers at MGM Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, Wynn Resorts, and Boyd Gaming. UNITE HERE partners nationally with the Teamsters and International Union of Operating Engineers to coordinate organizing and bargaining in the gaming industry.
The national scope and power of UNITE HERE has resulted in groundbreaking contracts for casino workers. As the industry continues to expand, UNITE HERE’s active organizing program continues to bring more gaming workers solidly into the middle class.
“Our wages are higher, the medical benefits are great, and we have a guaranteed 40-hour week. Thanks to all that, I have a beautiful 2,000-square-foot home with a three-car garage,” Marianne Singer, a server at the MGM Grand, told the New York Times.
