The leader of Atlantic City's largest casino workers union has easily won another three-year term.
The Press of Atlantic City reports Bob McDevitt's slate garnered about 55 percent of the vote in the election staged Friday by Local 54 of UNITE-HERE, easily beating back the challenge of three competing slates.
Union officials say about 2,500 of the union's estimated 12,000-13,000 members cast ballots, most at the Atlantic City Convention Center.

The 51-year-old union president has been accused of using bully tactics. But the Atlantic City resident has said the workers need a leader who won't back down.
McDevitt has led two casino strikes, in 1999 and 2004.
