A casino strike in the Canadian province of Ontario has been averted, reports Global News on MSN.com.
Six of the province’s eight casinos owned by the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation were facing a shutdown, but on Saturday morning most of the union members had signed a new tentative agreement.
Two thousand of them were due to go on strike that morning. The workers included those employed at table games and slots staff, security, cashiers and F&B.
But while the new agreement covered Great Blue Heron Casino, Casino Woodbine, Shorelines Casino Thousand Islands, Shorelines Casino Peterborough, Elements Casino Mohawk and Elements Casino Brantford, talks were continuing at the other two locations, Pickering Casino Resort and Casino Ajax, where workers remain on strike.
