Bartenders, beverage servers and other workers at Foxwoods Resorts Casino in Connecticut have approved a proposal that permits them to be represented by a union.

This is the second time the workers have approved joining the United Food and Commercial Workers Union. The first vote, taken last summer, was challenged by the Mashantucket Pequot tribe because the tribe did not supervise the vote.

The tribe said it expects negotiations to begin under tribal law in the coming weeks.
