Yet again, union negotiators are describing the bargaining environment in Ontario as “challenging.”

Dave Reston, union chair for the Canadian Auto Workers at the Brantford Casino, came to that conclusion after a new agreement for three Ontario casinos was ratified.

The margins were solid, including a 91 per cent at Woodbine Racetrack. This could translate into “a more engaged membership,”according to Henry Kosiak, the local chair.
