Discussion in 'Non-Vegas Casino Hotels' started by mjames1229, Apr 5, 2018.
Thanks yeah that is when I was going. I think it wasn't even Caesar's then iirc. Just casino Windsor
Please keep your political opinions out if the thread. Discussion about the closure and impacts are fine. The politics of it is not.
There were some talks today but no resolution.
It is interesting to note.....
"Stewart pointed out that 10 years ago the average hourly wage for a casino worker was $15.30. Today the average is $17.
“If you look at inflation for the last 10 years it’s up 17 per cent so that would put the average hourly rate at $17.90. They’re 90 cents behind inflation so you can understand their frustration. It’s hit them hard.”
Talks break off between Caesars Windsor and Unifor
From The Windsor Star
I remember when I was in college about 13-14 years ago before CET bought this property, they had a labor strike that closed the property that closed it for a couple weeks (used to drive up there a lot). Really like Casino Windsor and haven't been in a long time - hope they get it worked out quickly.
CW Facebook just posted an update that all reservations are being cancelled until May 19th
Yes we just got an email notification that our res. for 5/4 and the Brian Wilson concert are cancelled/postponed. What a drag, and this sucks for all 3 groups....union, management and players. Thinking of going to Joliet for the night Saturday 5/5 will see.
I have my ASP #1 trip planned for May 22, if it gets canceled hopefully they will allow me to re-book it. I already get free rooms, so all I really want is the $100 polio credit to use at Nero.
I had a trip planned for May 16 - 19 for 3 free nights. Also got the cancellation notice. Bummer.
Brian Wilson is now cancelled
Anyone heard any further news on this?
The President of the union stepped aside is the only new news I could find.
Just got an email that all shows and reservations are now cancelled thru May 31st.
And on it goes, notified all events through 5/31 are cancelled. Hope this gets resolved soon!!
Apparently the are resuming talks on Tuesday. It is really in everyone's best interest to get this resolved before the upcoming Holidays on both sides........Rick
Not ratified yet....
Tentative Deal reached at Caesars Windsor
That is good news, though it has been nice to keep our bank account growing. I hope both sides are happy and it passes, then it's time to hit a 15x day or 2 .....Rick
If the employees don't ratify this deal, I expect another long break in negotiations as 2 failed ratification votes spells trouble for union leadership. Beau Rivage already got my May/June money as I just recently set-up a Father's Day junket with them. Unless Windsor offers me a Fireworks viewing package, it may be a few months until I visit again,
Was voted on and not ratified...still on strike
Not privy to anything but when the president and the National endorse something and the body rejects the agreement there is a disconnect. Do the part-time workers have a whole vote of is it a partial and I wonder how much longer the strike funds last?? Too bad for all 3 parties involved, CET/Workers/Guests....Rick
