A message from BCGEU casino workers:
Over 675 BCGEU members working at four Gateway Casinos in the Thompson-Okanagan walked off the job on June 29 after mediation broke down with the employer. Workers are fighting for living wages, better working conditions, and respect on the job. BCGEU members work in table games, as slot attendants, cashiers, in the count room, kitchen, security, guest services, and maintenance.
As our strike surpasses the third-month mark, keeping moral high on the picket line is of the upmost importance. For that reason, we will be hosting a Solidarity Picket on October 19th (Friday) at 5:30pm at all four casinos.
