LINCOLN, R.I. (WLNE) — Bally’s Twin River and Tiverton Casinos extended their contract negations with the union Thursday.

Bally’s Spokeswoman Patti Doyle shared a statement, saying in part, “We are pleased to announce a two week contract negotiations extension with our Unite Here colleagues to continue to seek resolution on outstanding issues.”

The workers are fighting for higher wages and better healthcare.

“Bally’s employees are fighting for what they deserve: a fair contract so they can make a decent living, get back on their health benefits, and not feel exhausted after completing a work shift,” said UNITE HERE Local 26 president Carlos Aramayo last month.

Doyle added that both casinos will be open during the upcoming holiday weekend.
