New Davenport Casino will Bring Union Jobs

Faced with a choice between a downtown casino location built by out-of-state contractors and a location near Interstate 80 using local union labor, the Davenport City Council selected the latter. Yesterday, the council voted to enter into a contract with Ingenus, a developer that has committed to a project labor agreement on the casino.

Ingenus plans for a large casino near the interstate and a smaller boutique casino downtown.

“With this plan, we won’t have local families watching workers come in from Missouri and other states to do the work,” said president-business manager James Sweeney. “Local workers will be put to work on this project, which only enhances its effect on the area’s economy. The council’s unanimous vote further demonstrates the appeal of this plan.”
