Tuesday's complaints allege the company threatened workers and unilaterally changed work schedules and rules that cost employees money.

Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union has been fighting Trump Entertainment Resorts for months over working conditions at the casino. The casino narrowly escaped closing in December when billionaire investor Carl Icahn put up $20 million to keep it afloat.
