Woodbine Casino Collective Agreement

by admin on April 15, 2021

The victories include drastic pay increases, improvements to their retirement plans and initiatives to combat precarious work at the casino. Great Canadian Gaming is one of Canada`s leading casino operators and the constant pursuit of excellence is highlighted by the recent announcement. Casino Woodbine workers unionized with the Public Utilities Alliance of Canada recently ratified a new agreement that would cover the next four years of gaming operation. The collective agreement with the Public Service Alliance of Canada was born after important negotiations, but no details have been disclosed at this time. It should be noted that the casino`s location retains its position as a responsible employer. Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has authorized Great Canadian Gaming to operate casino sites scattered throughout the Greater Toronto Area. This game-bundle contains Casino Ajax and Great Blue Heron Casino, as well as permission to expand into the field of pickering. Last week saw the announcement that the Casino Resort would be built there would be called Pickering Casino Resort. The strengths of the four-year agreement, which expires on March 31, 2023, are the strengths: “I am so proud of our members who have come together to lobby this employer and reach a fantastic agreement that raises the bar for the entire gaming industry,” said Sharon DeSousa, PSAC Ontario Regional Executive Vice President.

We have achieved great successes, including the management of precarious work, by adding a clause in this agreement to have at least 50% of positions in the full-time bargaining unit! With 18 gaming units in Ontario, many of which had previously entered into concession agreements, Woodbine members remained with a bargaining trend that was not in their favour. But with determination and a strong mobilization strategy, the members ensured an uncompromising agreement with significant achievements that are contrary to the trend of the gaming industry. Members of the Public Utilities Alliance of Canada (PSAC) working at Woodbine Casino in Toronto have ratified a new collective agreement that includes historic gains for their members and sets a strong precedent for the gaming industry as a whole. It covers the next four years of gaming operation and directly affects those associated with the Public Utilities Alliance of Canada, with an emphasis on their best interests. Geno Iafrate, general manager of Casino Woodbine, said this is an important milestone in the casino`s history, which would pave the way for future excellence on the ground.
