Workers at the Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland, Ohio, have voted to unionize and be represented by four different unions.

The property is owned by the partnership of Caesars Entertainment Corp. (CZR) and Rock Ohio Gaming.

The unions said they hoped to unionize the other three casinos beginning with the Hollywood Casino that will open in Columbus in October. That property is owned by Penn National Gaming Inc.

The company is not opposed to having their workers unionized. A statement from the company said unions “have been valuable partners of ours from the earliest days of our campaign to bring gaming to Ohio.”
