The Caesars Windsor Hotel and Casino will remain closed until further notice as employees continue to strike. The strike which is entering its 42nd day over a wage dispute, has no date as to when employees will be made an offer they will accept. Last month’s proposal of an average increase of only CAD$1.75 over the course of the next three years was rejected by 59% of employees.
Ongoing discussions between the the state-run Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation casino and the Local 444 chapter of the Unifor trade union has resumed this week. However, all reservations and events for the casino has been cancelled until 31st May 2018.
According to the President of the Local 444 branch, Dave Cassidy, contract discussions have been at a standstill since 18 April 2018. Negotiators are also questioning the casino’s time-off request and their decision to replace union run restaurants with non-union businesses.
In a press interview, Cassidy further added that he is hoping they can come away with a fair and equitable agreement.
