The article reports that casino dealers at the Rio will hold a union vote on July 12, 2008 to determine whether they will have representation under the Las Vegas Dealers Local 721. The entry notes that the dealers are trying to unionize following concerns that they would face unemployment should the Rio be sold by new owners Apollo Management and TPG Capital. Analysts cite that the Rio's new owners might sell the resort to buy down nearly $25 billion in debt load during the buyout of Harrah's Entertainment.
