Workers at the Twin River Casino/ Bally’s Lincoln, R.I., have expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that they have not been summoned back to work since Rhode Island repealed the COVID-19 limitations.

Workers at the casino, who are represented by General Teamsters Local Union 251, have yet to be recalled to work after a long layoff, despite limitations being lifted and the Twin River’s gaming revenue and visitor capacity being boosted accordingly.

The gamesmanship with working conditions at Twin Rivers, according to Matthew Taibi, principal officer of Local 251, is destructive.

“It’s unfortunate that corporate profits are being prioritised before people, which Twin River has clearly demonstrated by its actions so far by not returning its valuable workers back to their previous positions,” said Taibi. “The fact that working Americans here in Rhode Island are having their surplus labor value ignored is disgusting. They’re betting against the house.

“Our members at Twin River are fully capable, willing, and qualified to return to their positions immediately. They have always provided exceptional customer service to guests who visit the casino from all over New England. It is time for Twin River to recall them to work.”

Over 6,300 workers in a number of businesses in Rhode Island are represented by Teamsters Local 251.
