Band union agreement

MANISTEE — The Little River Casino Resort and the United Steelworkers Union have entered into a collective bargaining agreement covering the Resort's EVS Bargaining Unit — the third entered into by the Resort and the Union.

In 2007, the Band enacted a law governing labor unions and collective bargaining modeled on public sector labor relations laws that allows collective bargaining within the Band's public sector, which includes its gaming operations at the Little River Casino Resort. It requires unions to hold a license from the Band, while providing a structure for union elections, bargaining rules and the resolution of unfair labor practice charges.

Only two other Indian nations have laws governing collective bargaining, according to the Band.

For information on the Little River Band's labor and employment laws, call 723-8288 or email
