Caesars Windsor and union reach tentative deal overnight

17 May 2018

The strike at Caesars Windsor could be over soon, after a six-week strike.

A second tentative agreement has been reached between Caesars Windsor management and the union representing the casino resort's striking workers.

Leadership at Unifor Local 444 said discussions went well Tuesday and they were optimistic heading into talks Wednesday.

Caesars Windsor's website says concerts before May 31 will be postponed, and hotel reservations before that date are also canceled.

The 2,100 cooks, dealers, housekeepers and janitors walked off the job 42 days ago after rejecting another tentative contract.

Unifor Local 444 has not yet announced details of the ratification vote and is asking members to stay on the picket lines for now.

After weeks of no communication, the two sides returned to the table on Tuesday, with the assistance of a provincial conciliator.

All events and hotel room bookings have been postponed/cancelled until the end of the month.
