ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - One of the longest and most bitter labor disputes in Atlantic City, N.J. is over.

Privately held Resorts Casino Hotel has signed a contract with the main casino workers' union, ending a more than two-year dispute that included picketing on the Boardwalk and a pressure campaign by Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union to have other unions cancel conventions at the hotel.

Both sides signed off on the deal in late December, but did not reveal the pact until this week.

A Resorts spokeswoman says the deal is essentially the same as those signed by other casinos.

Nine of the city's 12 casinos have labor deals with Local 54.
