Gov. JB Pritzker on Thursday signed SB 1360, a bipartisan-supported bill that requires casino applicants to enter into a labor agreement when seeking any new casino license or renewal.
Under the new law, which immediately takes effect, casino owners must provide evidence that they have entered project labor agreements that conform to state law. Such agreements must include goals for apprenticeship hours dedicated to minorities and women, procedures for addressing labor disputes and guarantees against strikes and lockouts. The agreements almost must allow the lowest qualified bidder to be selected.
