No pay increase for casino workers

Friday 29th August 2008

Casino workers in Southampton have been informed that they will not receive inflation-level pay increases, as requested by unions.

Harbour House and Mint casino staff in the south-coast city's centre will therefore be receiving an effective pay cut, reports the Southern Daily Echo.

Genting and Stanley, the gambling group in charge of the properties, this week revealed that the 4.7 per cent pay increase will not be implemented.

Close to 100 casino workers will be affected by the news.

Regional British General Union organiser Adrian Baker told the newspaper: "Staff will be horrified that the company is expecting its staff to draw on their own reserves to pay increased costs of energy, water and getting to work - this is effectively a pay cut."

Genting and Stanley launched an online gaming website earlier this year after the Alderney Gambling Control Commission granted them permission to do so.
