Illinois: Governor signs bill requiring project labor agreements for casinos The Telegraph · June 10, 2021 at 6:46 pm Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Thursday signed legislation requiring casino applicants to enter a project labor agreement when seeking a new or renewed casino license. “Expanding access to economic opportunity through high quality jobs has been priority since Day 1 for this administration,” said Pritzker. “SB 1360 meets that commitment while establishing a process that gives all hardworking men and women certainty and safe treatment.” Casino owner applicants must provide evidence that that they have entered into a project labor agreement which conforms to requirements of the Project Labor Agreements Act. The agreements will apply to employees engaged in construction and will also ensure the protection of Illinois jobs by eliminating the ability to bring in out-of-state workers at low wages.
