Unions sign pact for N.Y. state casino

The Cordish Cos., of Baltimore, and Wyomissing, Pennsylvania-based Penn National Gaming Inc., announced they have signed agreements with two union organizations to guarantee labor peace if they are allowed to build a $750 million gambling resort in upstate New York.

The agreements are with the Hudson Valley Building and Construction Trades Council and the Hotel and Motel Trades Council, AFL-CIO.

Cordish and Penn National have proposed a casino with over 3,000 slot machines and more than 250 live table games, a 300-room hotel, half a dozen restaurants and a conference center, in South Blooming Grove, Orange County, New York.

State gaming regulators have said they’ll grant licenses to one or two of the eight competing companies by year’s end.
