ATLANTIC CITY — As the anniversary of the closing of Trump Taj Mahal approaches, Unite Here Local 54 president Bob McDevitt says he wouldn't change the way he or the union handled the situation. 

On this week's Atlantic City Story podcast, we talked to McDevitt about the closing of the Taj Mahal, the union's role with Hard Rock when it opens and his public perception.

The property, once called the “Eighth Wonder of the World” by former owner Donald J. Trump, closed in October after management accused striking Local 54 members of preventing a “path to profitability.”
