This morning, a majority of the voting members of Unifor Local 444 rejected a tentative agreement that had been reached between the union leadership and Caesars Windsor.   Yesterday morning, Unifor Local 444, the union representing workers at Caesars Windsor announced that a “tentative agreement has been reached”.   A vote to ratify the contract was held at 10:00 a.m. this morning at the WFCU Centre.  The union membership rejected the contract with only 47.2%  in favor.  The union local’s Facebook page indicates that “people must remain on the picket line and report to your regular shifts for picket duty.”  

"This is unfortunate," Caesars Entertainment Regional President Kevin Laforet told Detroit Television station WDIV. "We are incredibly disappointed in the outcome of today’s vote, which was fully endorsed by both the Unifor National and Local 444 bargaining teams. The agreement is more than fair and sustainable. I personally want to apologize for the continued inconvenience this causes our customers. The long-term effect on our business goes well beyond revenue loss and is immeasurable."

Today marks the 43rd day of the strike by the approximately 2300 casino workers represented by the union, and the casino remains closed.
