Applicants for a license to operate a casino in Prince George’s County will have to reach a “labor peace agreement” with unions and provide their employees with health insurance and retirement benefits under rules issued by a state slots commission.
The requirements are included in a request for proposals the state Video Lottery Facility Location Commission released Wednesday.
The 110-page document lays out the procedures interested casino operators have to follow and the documents they must submit to the commission if they want to apply for Prince George’s sole casino license. Among other things, applicants will have to show they have an agreement in place with labor unions representing casino and hotel workers in the state. They will also have to describe plans for providing health insurance and retirement benefits to their workers. The license is for an initial 15 years.
