    Atlantic City's main casino workers' union is complaining to state labor and political officials about Revel Casino Hotel's use of part-timers.

    Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union says Revel is using part-timers at twice the city's average. In a letter to state Labor Commissioner Harold Wirths, the union says 29 percent of Revel's nearly 3,400 workers are part-timers.
    The union has been battling the largely non-union Revel over its labor policies since before it opened in 2012.
    A Local 54 spokesman says the union wants to make state officials aware of Revel's labor policies, particularly in light of state aid that helped the struggling casino to open, including a $2.6 million grant from the Labor Department.
    Revel declined comment on its staffing levels
