On Thursday, April 3, 2014, Caesars Windsor exercised a “planned shutdown” at 6:00 p.m., according to a press release issued by the casino. The shutdown came after negotiations between the casino and Unifor Local 444 did not produce a labor agreement under expected timeframes. A tentative agreement, however, was reached overnight on Thursday allowing the casino to reopen at 9:00 a.m. today.

According to statements made by Unifor Local 444, the union represents over 2,300 workers at Casino Windsor. Both the union and the casino have announced that there is a ratification meeting regarding the tentative agreement that has been scheduled for next Tuesday, April 8, with votes scheduled throughout the day to accommodate various shift workers.

Unifor is a Canadian-based labor organization representing approximately 300,000 private sector workers in various industries, including automotive, hospitality, fishing, energy, and other fields.
