GCGC and casino workers reach deal

It was just over a week ago that it was revealed that Unifor was in talks with the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation surrounding new, improved contracts for workers at several Ontario casinos. After the discussions were held, workers were given a period of time in which to consider the new terms and mention any changes they wished to be made.

Now, the GCGC and Unifor are proud to announce that certain departments and staff members at the casinos in question, who are represented by the union, have voted to ratify the new collection of professional agreements.

The workers from Casino Woodbine, Great Blue Heron Casino, Casino Ajax, Elements Casino Mohawk and Elements Casino Brantford have reportedly given their seal of approval to new work conditions and contract clauses as were requested by them at an earlier date. Between them and Unifor, one of Canada’s largest workers’ unions, the staff are now striving to promote workplace equality and fair remuneration for all employees in Ontario.

According to President and CEO of the GCGC Rod Baker, his organisation is pleased with the outcome of the voting session as it worked thoroughly to create and offer benefits and compensation packages that would fairly rewards its staff and recognize their valuable contributions.

It has also been confirmed that the new collective agreements between Great Canadian and the Unifor team members will be based on a four-year term.
