A federal judge upheld a vote by Foxwoods Resort Casino dealers to unionize Friday, ruling that there was no misconduct by the United Auto Workers union prior to the election in November.

Hartford Judge Raymond P. Green concluded in this decision that Foxwoods did not prove union organizers intimidated casino workers to get them to vote in favor of joining the UAW.

The decision will now be sent to the National Labor Relations Board’s regional office so the election results can be certified.
