Slow times blamed for 45 job cuts at casinos
From the Niagara Falls Review:
Casino Niagara and Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort cut 45 jobs Tuesday in one of the biggest single-day reductions since the casinos opened.
Three pit managers and 42 table games supervisors were let go, as the casino dealt with what it called “a consistent overstaffing situation.”
“This overstaffing situation was unique to the table games department,” said Art Frank, president of Niagara Casinos, the company that manages the two government-owned casinos in Niagara Falls.
The casinos had more supervisors and pit managers than they needed, due to “limited business growth prospects,” a reconfiguration of the gaming floor and a new scheduling process, casino management said in a one-page statement after The Niagara Falls Review asked about the changes.
