Boston (AP) — Mohegan Sun has reached agreements with two labor groups to hire union carpenters and tradesmen should it win approval to build a casino in Revere.
The company also said Sunday it had signed a memorandum of understanding with several other Boston unions to allow for unionization of the casino's permanent workforce.
Mohegan Sun is vying for the state's only gambling license in the Boston area. Company executives have proposed a $1.3 billion resort on about 42 acres of land owned by Suffolk Downs horse track in Revere.
Mohegan Sun officials tell The Boston Globe the union agreements show they are committed to developing a healthy workforce if they secure both the state gambling license and voters' approval.
Revere residents will vote on a referendum regarding the casino Feb. 25.
