This whole situation I believe is directly related to the rapid recent increase in the Minimum Wage. If you have been making $5 more than the MW, and now all of a sudden are just making $1 more, you feel like you are being underpaid

The feeling is justified and accurate. The dealers have been standing there doing the same thing, maybe a few rule changes or procedure changes but their salary has been eroded and the causation is not relevant at all.

Managerial performance has NOT been good because if it were good there would be no discontent much less sufficient discontent to strike during a Canadian winter. If nothing else managers should have been more frank with the employees and demonstrated a greater honesty and forthrightness by at least broaching the situation.

Looks the the walleye are running... at least something is running on this side


Caesars surely is doing what the people that pay them to run the place are telling them to do.

Unifor needs to OPEN THE VAULT and start paying the workers $500 a week strike pay to send a message to the Ontario joke of a government that they are in for the long haul.

The Detroit casinos are still ghost towns except weekends which is normal. The strike hasn't improved turnout at the 3 here.

Canceling things so far in advance is not the hallmark of a company that is bargaining in good faith.

What if the casino management really means that if they give more than they have already offered then the business will not be profitable enough? If they say .... "This is our offer.....".... Is that not bargaining in good faith? The casino HAS offered raises, so to me they have 'negotiated in good faith'. Does the union only say it is in good faith when the casino agrees to their demands?

There is a touch of Devil's Advocate in my argument, but you get the point.....
