The strike on July 1 will be over negotiations with Atlantic City casino companies for contracts with unions. Employees are unhappy with the efforts and are planning strikes at five of the eight casinos in the city .

A vote from union members found that 96% were in favor of the strike against Atlantic City casino companies. Employees claim that the businesses haven't given enough back after the union made sacrifices to help them during 2011, reports the Associated Press.

"Our goal remains to negotiate a fair resolution to keep our employees at work for their sake and to continue supporting Atlantic City's revitalization," Caesars Entertainment Corp ( CZR ), which owns three of the casinos where strikes would occur, told CNNMoney .
