Several former Melco Crown dealers take up arms

Around five to six former dealers from Melco Crown have sought assistance from Macau’s Labor Affairs Bureau (DSAL), alleging they were unfairly dismissed and are owed award bonuses up to MOP100,000 (US$13,000), local media reports.

The dealers, who are seeking assistance through the Union of New Macau Gaming Workers Rights, submitted the complaints on Tuesday according to Macau TDM. The dealers also revealed that given the performance of the gaming industry in Macau, many workers have been receiving warning letters for showing lack of spirit or sleepiness.

The dismissed dealers also claim that the company had promised to award bonuses of around MOP100,000 (US$13,000) each to senior employees but the bonuses cannot be received once the relevant employee are dismissed.
