Foxwood Bartenders Will Vote Again

UFCW local 371 has agreed to a new election under tribal law to avoid what could be years of litigation over sovereignty at Foxwood Casino. The UFCW won an NLRB election last July and the Board certified those result on March 17th having dismissed charges that the election was tainted by the union’s race baiting of the casino’s 400 bartenders. The tribe has agreed to begin bargaining with the UFCW if the union wins Monday’s tribal election.

Two other unions have won tribal elections at Foxwood and a third, the UAW’s dealer unit, has agreed to negotiate under Mashantucket Pequot tribal law. The UFCW lost a tribal election in 2009 when beverage workers voted against representation 207 to 133.
