Caesars Windsor is the latest casino to contract its staff. The agreement outlines how current workers will be able to stay on, but others may not find work if they do not meet the new requirements.

Caesars Windsor Casino Staff Agrees to a Contract

Unifor Local 444 announced over the weekend that Caesars Windsor Casino and staff employees who were planning a strike have approved a preliminary deal. Discussions between the labor union and the casino’s management began in February of this year, and the union has finally been able to reach an agreement for its members that is both new and better.

According to him, 93 percent of the employees voted in favor of the proposed contract, which he claims is the greatest agreement rate in the gaming property’s history.

Mr. Cassidy went on to say that the new signing bonus is for those who have been laid off. For example, if a full-time employee is laid off, they should be entitled to the commensurate bonus. Despite recent improvements in health restrictions, nearly 600 Windsor employees are still laid off, according to union figures.

The president of the union is optimistic that once borders reopen, the casino will be able to return to pre-unprecedented levels of performance, allowing more employees to return to work. He also said that the union did not accept any compromises during the discussions and that there would be a 1% pension hike. The present agreement, which ends on April 2, 2022, will be replaced by the new one.

Prior to the two sides’ agreement last week, Mr. Cassidy said that he would want to see additional help from the provincial and federal governments for employees who are no longer eligible for unemployment insurance. As he said, the unique scenario has had a negative impact on personnel as well as the closure and reopening of gambling locations.

New Market’s Potential Impact

Although Caesars Windsor Casino reopened at the end of January, there may be more bad news on the way for the casino. According to a report conducted by HLT Advisory Inc., Ontario’s iGaming sector will have a significant impact on the land-based business. According to the report, roughly 100 of the 500 gaming-related jobs at the Windsor facility will be lost over time.
