PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Bally’s Twin River Casino workers will rally Tuesday afternoon in Providence t0 “demand” higher wages and full staffing.

Employees will be wearing red shirts and signs that read, “Bally’s United” and UNITE HERE.”

They will be joined by workers from Bally’s in Atlantic City and Las Vegas, as well as Encore Boston Harbor.

“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.

In statement to ABC 6 News Tuesday, a spokesperson for Bally’s said it “does not comment on personnel matters.  Further, as we are in contract negotiations, we prefer to negotiate with our colleagues in good faith at the bargaining table.”
