In a town desperate for any hopeful economic activity, the one bright spot on the horizon is being threatened by self-serving union thugs. The Revel hotel and casino is not even finished yet, but Unite Here is fighting tooth and nail to prevent state and city financial incentives, bringing development to a halt.

“I’m trying to understand how a union official would explain to its members how it blocked money that would allow a project to get completed that would provide 6,000 jobs,” said Revel’s Mr. Jaffoni.

Unite Here does not have a labor agreement with the hotel/casino that would make it easier to organize the workers, which is typical of other casinos in the Atlantic City area, a union stronghold. The union is pulling out the stops in typical corporate campaign fashion, including a web site questioning the financial viability of the project.

Seems a bit like cutting off your nose to spite your face.
