Legislative findings and declaration.
The Legislature finds and declares that:
The relationship which exists between a labor organization and the employees whom it represents or seeks to represent in collective bargaining is such that it may significantly affect the conduct of a gaming operation by an employer.
In the past, attempts have been made by persons whose background is not suitable for association with licensed gaming to gain positions of control in labor organizations representing or seeking to represent gaming casino employees in this state.
In order to carry out the declared policy of this state that licensed gaming be conducted freely and honestly, and in order to protect the welfare of the employees of the gaming industry which is fundamental to the economy of this state, it is necessary to determine the suitability of any person who performs or seeks to perform certain significant functions in the representation of gaming casino employees in this state.
