Newly Opened Atlantic City Resource Center Providing Support to Workers in Need


While Atlantic City and thousands of laid-off workers face a difficult road ahead, the support shown by union members, the community, and local leaders during these trying times has been outstanding. This much was evident at the “AC Unites Here” resource center which opened its doors today to connect impacted workers with the resources needed to help build a stable future for themselves and their families.

Dozens of people from all segments of the community turned out to show their support including union leaders, faith leaders, and elected officials. The closure of four casinos is an unprecedented economic disaster in our state. Nothing could be more important that assisting these workers in their time of need.

The New Jersey State AFL-CIO is working with UNITE HERE Local 54 and others to help these workers through their rough transition to new jobs and new opportunities. You can support these efforts on behalf of our union brothers and sisters and all affected casino employees by donating to the cause:

Donations can be wired directly to the UNITE HERE Local 54 Hardship Fund:

Or mailed to:

It is clear that the community stands together at this critical time. And together we will do whatever it takes to help Atlantic City and its workers survive and build a sustainable future.
