River Rock Casino Collective Agreement

This morning, the B.C. Government and Service Employees` Union announced that more than 400 members voted in favour of their first collective agreement at Vancouver`s Hard Rock Casino. "Parq Casino employees now have the best pay scale in the B.C casino industry," said Deb Tveit, Assistant to Unifor`s President. "Unifor is clearly Canada`s leading hotel, restaurant and gambling union." Last September, the legendary Parq Vancouver Casino opened its doors to the crowd. The resort is the largest private development in British Columbia and offers a number of gambling products and services. Parq Urban Casino is often described as vancouver`s crown jewel. Interestingly, the news of the renewed collective agreement came shortly after River Rock Casino employees announced that they wanted to go on strike for fair wages and improved working conditions. The potential strike will result in significant losses for the company behind the casino, particularly for the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation.

It goes without saying that employee joy is a key to business success. It would seem that the company behind Parq Vancouver shares the same attitude on this subject. "We are proud of our efforts and ability to work with BCGEU to reach an agreement that is beneficial to our team members and also recognizes our business requirements.

We are confident that this new contract will provide the framework for us to work together and set a new standard for the industry," said Michael Kim, General Manager, Casino Operations, River Rock Casino Resort. "BCGEU members at Hard Rock Casino have stood together in a long struggle and, thanks to their strength and solidarity and the support of the labour movement and community, they now have a collective agreement that sets a new standard for B.C casino workers," said Stephanie Smith, President of the BCGEU, in the press release. Casinos have been around for many years. Casino Gaming has experienced extreme growth in Canada over the past few decades. This has attracted the attention of many casino investors who have added dice to the Canadian gambling market.
