Workers at Casino Rama — one of Ontario’s largest casino resorts — negotiated a tentative first contract with the resort.
The deal would cover nearly 1,700 employees at Rama including dealers, cashiers, slot workers, food and beverage staff, environmental services, finance, hotel, valet, entertainment and other staff.
The workers voted to join Unifor last year by a vote of more than 71 per cent.
Details of the collective agreement — which was unanimously recommended by the union’s bargaining team — will be released following ratification.
Unifor also represents employees at Caesars Windsor, Great Blue Heron Gaming, Manitoba Lotteries Corp and other gaming sites across Canada.
