Casino workers in Coquitlam, Vernon, Penticton, Kelowna and Kamloops are on strike for fair wages, benefits and respect at work.
After months of negotiation with Hard Rock in Coquitlam, the employer has failed accept reasonable proposals made by workers that include better wages, benefits, dependable work hours and respect. Many Hard Rock workers haven't received a wage increase in over 10 years and are working 2-3 jobs as they struggle to get by. Great Canadian Gaming, the company who owns Hard Rock Casino Vancouver, recently reported massive gains in revenue - a 62% increase in this quarter over the same quarter last year!
Meanwhile in the Okanagan, casino owner Gateway won’t even commit to salaries that stay ahead of minimum wage despite being a successful company in a highly profitable industry. These workers are the heart of the casino and they deserve a living wage that keeps money working in the Thompson Okanagan.
Show your support for these workers by adding your name to this pledge!
TELL GATEWAY AND GREAT CANADIAN GAMING THAT CASINO WORKERS DESERVE A FAIR CONTRACT NOW!
