Labor board intervenes in dispute between casino and union

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The National Labor Relations Board is intervening in a dispute between a Rhode Island casino and a union seeking a list of reported crimes at the facility.

Twin River Casino has until next Monday to answer a complaint issued by the board after the union representing casino employees filed an unfair labor practice charge.

A Twin River spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to email messages seeking comment Wednesday.

Service Employees International Union Local 334 asked in March for a list of reported break-ins, assaults, burglaries and other crimes at the Lincoln casino. Twin River responded with a list of crimes involving employees, not all crimes.

Union lawyer Marc Gursky says there’s been an uptick in crime and the union wants the casino to provide parking lot shuttles for employees, or take other steps.
