Twin River Casino is slashing hours -- and healthcare -- for over 180 dealers.Twin River Casino has cut the hours — and healthcare benefits — for over 180 dealers. The company said the reductions are due to the impact of the state’s COVID-19 restrictions.
Twin River employee Jennifer Romanov criticized the decision.
“186 dealers found out we’re losing our Blue Cross on February 1,” she said. “We're apart of LIUNA 711 [Laborers' International Union of North America]. Our contract expired in June of last year but we were told due to COVID, they haven't been able to negotiate. “
Romanov, who has worked at Twin River for five years, said she had to pick up two new part-time jobs elsewhere as a result of the reduced hours.
“Our contract stated we needed to work on average 30 hours a week. So we would make sure when we were called back to work we did that. We were never told we had to work 690 hours. There was no possible way someone being called back in August could achieve that magic number,” she said. “No one was able to newly get insurance. And the kicker, it's during COVID — we can't go in if we're sick.”
“Regrettably, continued COVID-19 guidance of reduced hours and limited offerings has necessitated the reduction of some employee hours,” said Twin River spokesperson Patti Doyle. “We all look forward to the day when these restrictions are lifted.”
Doyle said the state’s mandated reduced hours necessitated the cuts. Cyprus football betting game.
“Remember, some of the COVID-19 guidelines include a 10 pm closure - 10:30 pm on weekends - as opposed to 24/7, no poker, reduced slot machines, no valet, etc,” said Doyle, of the reduced need for employees.
