Mohegan Sun signs agreement with local unions for new Massachusetts Casino

Mohegan SunOfficials of the the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority announced on Friday that they had reached an agreement with local unions to guarantee the use of unionized workers at at least one of two proposed Massachusetts Casinos.

According to a recent announcement, The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority, which operates the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut and Mohegan Sun at Poconos Downs, signed agreements with the Pioneer Valley Building Trades Council and the Carpenters Local 108 of the New England Council of Carpenters to build a new $600 million casino project in Palmer. 

The project currently depends on lawmakers in Massachusetts approving a new bill that to expand the gaming and casino industry in the state. If approved by the Legislature, the Mohegan Sun project would create thousands permanent and temporary construction jobs. The project, proposed for land off Exit 8 of the Massachusetts Turnpike, would create about 1,000 to 1,200 construction jobs as well as an approximate of 2,500 to 3,000 permanent jobs.

The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority describes the project as a resort style casino with poker and other live tables plus slot machines, a 600 room hotel and spa with retail and event spaces. Mohegan estimate the casino could generate between 475 and 525 million dollars per year.
