The Union of Members Clubs and Lottery Workers is seeking a meeting with Finance Minister, Colm Imbert, to discuss government plans and how they affect the sector.
In a News Power Now interview this afternoon UMCLW President, Cindy Mohammed, claims that the last time the industry was taxed without roper consultations it resulted in the contraction of the sector and the loss of jobs.
UMCLW is urging the state to aggressively and actively promoting private sector revenue generating activities so as to protect employment such as the gaming industry.
Ms Mohammed said there is a level of unease among workers in the sector due to uncertainty about the future of the industry.
