Labor unions to talk about construction stoppage at casino

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Cincinnati AFL-CIO and the Greater Cincinnati Building and Construction Trades Council will hold a press conference Thursday at the site of the Cincinnati Casino site at Broadway Commons.

Work stopped at the site almost three weeks ago as the Kasich administration continues to explore additional taxes on casinos.

Local area labor unions and businesses are anxious for work to resume because they say it is costing local area workers nearly 1,000 jobs.

Thursday's press conference is scheduled for 2 p.m.
