The Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria in California welcomes labor unions at its casino but it's not clear how the first contract will be negotiated, The North Bay Bohemian reported.

About 600 employees of the Graton Resort and Casino voted to join UNITE HERE Local 2850. The group hopes to include Station Casinos, which manages the facility for the tribe, in the negotiations.

But Station Casinos, whose executives have resisted unions at other facilities they manage, doesn't plan to be there. A spokesperson for the company told the paper that talks will occur between the union and the tribe.

The tribe, however, hasn't determined how to proceed. "I can't discuss that, and I don't know yet," Chairman Greg Sarris told the paper.

Employees in other parts of the casino are starting their own union drives. About 1,200 people work at the facility, which opened last November.
