A federal judge invalidated a Class III gaming compact for the Pauma Band of Luiseño Indians
of California last month, a ruling that affected how unions organize at the tribe's casino.
The tribe no longer has to remain neutral on union matters at Casino Pauma
. And any organizing efforts must take place by secret ballot, which is typically more difficult than obtaining so-called authorization cards.
Casino workers, however, believe they have enough support to join the Unite Here union.
They held a rally yesterday and presented a petition with 149 signatures, representing more than half of the employees at the casino.
