(WINDSOR, ON) – For now, Caesars Windsor will remain closed despite negotiators reaching a tentative agreement with officials from Unifor local 444. Workers at the casino will vote on the new deal, which was reached around 1:30am this morning, at a ratification meeting tomorrow morning at the WFCU Centre.
As with the previous agreement achieved between Caesars and Unifor in early April, this deal is 100 per cent endorsed by the union’s bargaining committee, according to president Dave Cassidy. In the meantime, the 2,300 striking workers will continue to walk the picket line around Caesars Windsor.
The strike at Caesars Windsor started when employees rejected a negotiated contract on April 6 by a 59 per cent vote. All event and bookings have been cancelled at Caesars Windsor until the end of May.
