A.C. Revel to put term limits on customer service employees

Jul 9, 2012 8:19 PM

Imposing so-called term limits on employees is a plan that does not sit well with the unions in Atlantic City but efforts to place the matter on a November ballot were crushed last week by an Atlantic City official.

The plan, that calls for customer service employees of the Revel casino to re-apply for their jobs between four and six years after having been hired, is being challenged by Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union. However, the union’s effort to have the matter placed on the November ballot was rejected by City Clerk Rhonda Williams.

Williams ruled that the petition, in effect, was asking to tie the hands of the City Council.

Before being hired by the $2.4 billion Revel, job applicants were warned that they would have to re-apply for their jobs in as little as four years.
