Casino Employees Association has solution to help revitalize Atlantic City

Casino Employees Association™
By Casino Employees, for Casino Employees

Trenton, NJ – The Association has put together a solution that will help part-time, full-time and seasonal casino employees get the help they need to succeed in the workplace.

The gaming Industry in Atlantic City is going through some tremendous changes.  With the presence of competition from neighboring states, a fragmented workforce and the continuous rise of health insurance costs, there’s no telling when or how the current situation will improve.

This market condition is forcing most Atlantic City casinos to cut employee hours and medical benefits in order to compete and keep their doors open.  Some casinos are in foreclosure and others have sold at prices below market value in order to exit the market without further losses.

The telltale sign is clear and it says “OUR INDUSTRY IS IN TROUBLE & IT NEEDS OUR HELP”.

Our association will provide to our members: continued education, centralized training, job placement/preparation & voluntary group health benefits.  Our members understand that their future depends on our own actions.  Working together with the Casino Employees Association, the employees will have more security in the workplace and help revitalize the industry they work in. We are taking action now which will not only help the employees get through these difficult times, but will prepare them for future endeavors and challenges.


The Casino Employees Association™ (C.E.A.) has been formed to enrich the lives of thousands of casino employees who play a major role in the Gaming & Hospitality Industries.  As a Voluntary Collective, the C.E.A. uses its purchasing potential to negotiate group rates for products & services – then passes these savings on to its members.  “Our members are enjoying being a part of an independent professional association that can provide them with the basic and essential tools to continue to do good work wherever they may go. They will be more desirable to employers, as the association will prepare them with job placement opportunities, continued education & career development that will reflect in the workplace. We are also working with insurance carriers to offer our members affordable voluntary health benefits that so many are in need of.” said Anthony Ortiz, President of the C.E.A.

Member Benefits:

  • Job Placement Assistance/Preparation
  • Social Services
  • Networking Events
  • Voluntary Medical Benefits


The Casino Employees Association is a Voluntary Collective who uses a market-driven approach to solve their problems independent of employers.  Through continued education, job placement & career development, they ensure their member’s long term success and the success of the industries in which they serve.


Their mission is to “Make Good Casino Employees Better” by providing them with the tools & essentials they need to excel in the marketplace.
