“The most important thing to me about being part of the union is the right to voice your opinion in the workplace,” said Terri Sykes, a Table Games Dealer and Chairperson for Motor City Casino of Local 7777. “Also, being a part of bargaining our members’ health care, wages, time off and handling disciplinary grievances gives you a sense of responsibility that I welcome.”

Workers who chose the UAW in the following casinos have historically negotiated increases in wages through bonuses, lump sums and/or base rate increases. Maintained and/or improved benefits and working conditions by first:

  1. Gaining union recognition by calling the UAW Organizing or Gaming Departments at 313-926-5000, and;
  2. Entering after recognition into the collective bargaining process.

Guaranteed year over year wage increases, achieved with UAW support through collective bargaining has lead to higher base wage rates and improved working conditions for all UAW Gaming members. That is why since 2000 and continuing on through today, gaming workers in Table Games, Poker, Slots and various other casino departments/classifications have recognized the UAW as their exclusive bargaining agent.
