Tambrey Hashimoto, Paris-Las Vegas Hotel-Casino
Transport Workers Union Local 721 is at it again. The dealers' local has just organized casino workers at Bally's and Paris-Las Vegas. We talk to them about why they wanted to organize union representation, where their contract is going and whether they expect more dealers to organize.
"I wanted something that I could take home to my family and basically that’s all we want, just to feel secure and be happy in our workplace," says Tambrey Hashimoto, a dealer at Paris casino.
"There’s got to be at least 10,000 dealers in town and we all want the same things – we want to go home to our families and take vacations together – just normal, everyday things."
