Uniondale, Long Island 3/21/2024 The event crew security officers as well as the core crew security officers working for AEG Management @ the Long Island Sports Arena known as the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum have achieved the highest wage increase they have ever received an 18% wage increase that amounted to raises between $2.95 per hour for core crew security officers and $2.55 cents per hour for event crew security officers.

Our Union United Federation LEOS-PBA Law Enforcement Officers Security & Police Benevolent Association was successful in negotiating our first contract with AEG Management after our Union United Federation LEOS-PBA was successful in organizing this group back in 2023. Previously these Event & Core security officers were represented by SEIU 32BJ for a number of years prior to our Union organizing the group.

We are all ecstatic on how United Federation LEOS-PBA was successful to negotiate the highest wage increases we have ever received" noted Tony Vinci a 20 year veteran at the Coliseum. We were used to $0.40 to $0.50 cent yearly raises, now with the United Federation LEOS-PBA's help they were successful in negotiating a yearly wage rate between $2.95 and $2.55 an hour plus retroactive pay.

Las Vegas Sands secures lease agreement with Nassau County for proposed New York casino

Las Vegas Sands has taken a step forward in its efforts to secure one of three downstate New York casino licenses. New York’s Nassau County has now signed a preliminary 99-year lease agreement with the gaming and hospitality giant for the use of its 80-acre Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum site for the development of an integrated resort on Long Island.

The Nassau Coliseum, which was formerly home to the NHL’s New York Islanders, is a 16,000-seat arena. At the site, Sands intends to develop a $4 billion resort that would include outdoor community spaces, four- and five-star hotel rooms and a world-class live performance venue honoring the legacy of live music at the Nassau Coliseum.

"We are going to develop the Coliseum site with a world-class hotel, a world-class entertainment center, and that is going to be funded by a casino,” Blakeman said, as reported by the Long Island Herald. “We believe that that will bring jobs, economic prosperity, tax relief, and improved safety here in Nassau County.”
