Striking in Atlantic Casinos Intensifies.

The simmering confrontation between Culinary Local 226 and Harrah's Entertainment's more than 10,000 striking casino workers in Atlantic City is far more likely to intensify than end any time soon, union and company executives said Wednesday.

The striking union bartenders, cocktail servers, housekeepers, porters, food servers and counter servers walked off their jobs Oct. 1 at seven Atlantic City casinos, including two owned by Harrah's. Three others are owned by Caesars Entertainment, which Harrah's is planning to buy for $9.4 billion.

The critical issue is the union's demand for a three-year contract extension so hotel workers' contracts in Las Vegas and Atlantic City would end at the same time.
