“BCGEU members at Hard Rock Casino have a long and bitter struggle and, thanks to their strength and solidarity and support from the labour movement and the community, they now have a collective agreement that sets a new standard for B.C casino workers,” said BCGEU President Stephanie Smith in the press release. Three days after the agreement was ratified, Attorney General David Eby instructed former Mountie chief Peter German to check money laundering at B.C casinos. This morning, the B.C. Government and Service Employees` Union announced that more than 400 members voted for their first collective bargaining agreement at the Hard Rock Casino in Vancouver. Casinos have been around for many years. Casino Gaming has experienced extreme growth in Canada in recent decades. This has caught the attention of many casino investors who have rolled the dice on the Canadian gaming market.

Richmond, BC (September 25, 2017): Today, The River Rock Casino Resort (River Rock) entered into a new collective agreement with the BC Government and Service Employees` Union (BCGEU), which currently represents nearly 1,000 members of the River Rock team. The new quadrennial collective agreement includes a robust compensation structure that is accompanied by a large number of non-monetary benefits. Yesterday, it was reported that employees of Casino Parq, represented by Unifor Local 3000 (a Canadian union of workers working in the private sector) have entered into a new three-year contract. The $640 million development has become the engine of Vancouver`s robust economic development. Among other things, the opening of the casino offered more employment opportunities for local employees. Downtown`s only casino spans 72,000 square meters, with 75 gaming tables and 600 slot machines and video poker machines.

The game accommodation also has 11 exclusive lounges for VIP players. The new contract offers unionized jobs, significantly increases wages and addresses problematic issues such as harassment. The new collective agreement provides for a 27.5% increase in wages on average in the first year and a 2% increase over the next two years. Casino employees began negotiations on the new terms of contract last November. Another important aspect of the agreement is the new protection system against abusive casino benefactors. In addition, the new agreement also regulates certain food and beverage issues and brings all food and beverage services back to positions with Unifor (a general union in Canada). Deb Tveit, an assistant to the Unifor National President, commented that Parq Casino is listed as one of the top employers in the B.C casino gaming industry. Earlier this month, BCGEU members declined a preliminary agreement at Vancouver`s Hard Rock Casino.
