Caesars Windsor Unifor Local 444 Unionized Employees Vote No on 2nd Tentative Agreement
May 18, 2018
Windsor, Ont. – On Friday, May 18, Caesars Windsor unionized employees voted down the second tentative agreement between Caesars Windsor and Unifor Local 444. At the ratification vote held at the WFCU Centre, 53% of membership voted not to ratify.
Kevin Laforet, Regional President, Caesars Entertainment, said, “This is unfortunate. We are incredibly disappointed in the outcome of today’s vote which was fully endorsed by both the Unifor National and Local 444 Bargaining teams. The agreement is more than fair and sustainable. I personally want to apologize for the continued inconvenience this causes our customers. The long term effect on our business goes well beyond revenue loss and is immeasurable.”
As a result, Caesars Windsor unionized employees continue to be on strike and the property will remain temporarily closed to the public until a new tentative agreement is reached and ratified. At this time, there are no plans to return to the bargaining table.
Information about the future events and shows affected by the extended strike will be shared soon. Please stay tuned. For regular updates and reopening information, please visit caesarswindsor.com or follow us on facebook.com/caesarswindsor and @caesarswindsor on Twitter.
