Bally’s Signs Project Labor Agreement for $1.7B Chicago Casino 

Bally’s Corporation has signed a Multi-Project Labor Agreement (PLA) with the Chicago & Cook County Building & Construction Trades Council and the AFL-CIO Building and Construction Trades Department as it relates to construction of its forthcoming $1.7-billion Bally’s Chicago casino. 
 
“This PLA is a demonstration of our commitment to embrace organized labor that has played such a key role in building the great city of Chicago,” said Bally’s chairman Soo Kim. “This is the first step of a project that will be built by Chicago, for Chicago, and help the city keep its promises to the police and fire pensions.”

Located on the 30-acre Chicago Tribune Publishing Center site, Bally’s Chicago will include 3,400 slots, 170 table games, 10 food and beverage venues, a 500-room hotel tower with rooftop bar, a 3,000seat / 65,000-square-foot entertainment center, a 20,000-square-foot exhibition, outdoor music venue and outdoor green space.
