ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey — A union says notices will go out Friday to workers at Atlantic City's Showboat casino warning them that the gambling hall may shut down in 60 days.

Bob McDevitt, president of local 54 of the Unite-HERE union, says a top executive of the Showboat's parent company, Caesars Entertainment, said the employees would be notified on Friday.

They are to get WARN Act notices that are required under federal law to give workers two months' notice that their jobs may be terminated or their workplace shut down.

The Showboat is the poorest-performing of the four Atlantic City casinos that Caesars Entertainment owns.

Company CEO Gary Loveman said in May that Atlantic City's 11 casinos are too many, and that the company would work to find ways to reduce its expenses in New Jersey.
