BATAVIA – Workers at Batavia Downs Gaming and Western New York OTB voted to change their union representation in two separate Public Employment Relations Board elections last week.

By a 3-1 margin, about 325 workers in the two units chose to leave Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 200United and join the United Public Service Employees Union (UPSEU). In December, the Western New York OTB Supervisory Unit, also represented by SEIU, voted overwhelmingly to join UPSEU.
