The union representing workers wants extended health benefits.

ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey (WABC) -- Atlantic City's Hard Rock Casino is going all-in on plans to safely reopen in the aftermath of the pandemic.

The casino announced plans to install plexiglass at gaming tables, maintain empty seats to encourage social distancing, and temperature checks for all guests.

The goal is to open by the 4th of July weekend.

However a union that represents more than 1,200 Hard Rock employees say they won't agree to any plan that does not include extended healthcare benefits.
