That was an extremely depressing property the past few years. 2/3 of the storefronts dark, ridiculously oversized check-in for their current crowds, someone like me getting a suite (that was in terrible shape), the place definitely showed its age. I would have loved to see it in its hayday.

I remember it's opening and how grand it was. But Trump Plaza was huge at that time too. Times change and you either adapt or someone else does. More people without jobs in an already bad market. No winners here.

Oh well. It probably wasn't the worst casino o'er there.

Well now.
Striking employees cause Mgt to throw their hands up in disgust.
AC is struggling, and not just with their casino businesses.
If they do indeed close:
The striking workers didn't 'win'.
Mgt didn't win either, BTW.
Well, unless mgt made a bet with Lloyd's of London.

I don't like to hear of closures, but closures are a part of the evolution of gambling in the USA. You can extend that statement beyond the US borders if you like.

'Bout 25 years ago in a board mtg I proclaimed;
"We will get to work with or against a Union of our workers if, and only if, we didn't accomplish the job tasks we all had in prior years that led to this upcoming vote. How do you all think we did?" I do not serve on that Board anymore. Some people can't handle the truth.....

This is how you bust unions. Close down, then reopen later under a new name with new employees. Nothing new here.

good job strikers.
im sure they learned their lesson.

what the hell was the Union thinking?!



The UNION?

Icahn is at least in the top 5, if not the biggest union buster of the past 40 years. This has all been kabuki theater.

This is all out of the playbook he helped write.

Screw your employees by negotiated cuts to stay open.

Screw them again thru bankruptcy court with involuntary cuts.

Yet again by promising a cash infusion that never comes, leaving a deteriorated mess.

And again by not offering parity in the area.

Take years to do all this to your employees, leading them on with garbage promises and false hopes.

Then oh my, they walk. What took them so long? He wanted them to walk 2 years ago , and they were too stubborn to go. But finally, they do, and now it's all their fault.

All out of the book. I'll try and find the title if anyone's interested. It's a nasty book. But then, he's a nasty guy.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

The mail is probably already out for September if they truly made the decision only today.

I seem to recall Revel was complaining people were not gambling and only taking comps the last few weeks of their business and wanted to shut down prematurely but were forced to keep to their schedule and offers.

Hi BABBs. You sound like you know much more about the Union movement and Union organization than I do. It's really only come up in my life a couple of times. I was conflicted, I sought some universal truth, I needed help I didn't find.

I finally settled on a couple points, just with myself.
- if you get a Union as an organization you prolly deserve one you dumb ahole. Now trying to be smart after the fact? Good luck with that.
- gov't employees should not be allowed to unionize, period. Don't like that? Work in the private sector.

I hung with the sector control FAA strikers back in 1980 (?) in Miami.
Good dudes, bad choices.

Treat your employees right, they will not feel a need to unionize.
Treat your employees wrong, they unionize and both sides lose, yes both sides.
In a competitive free capitalist marketplace there is simply not room for the 'costs' of a union while you attempt to remain competitive in the marketplace. The company will die, the industry may die.
Put unions in government workers?
You finish the thought. Finish it any way that floats your boat.
You got no boat?
