Gateway Grand Villa Bargaining Update – Delivered Monetary Package - BCGEU

We delivered a full monetary package to the employer last week and we're expecting a response at our next scheduled bargaining dates. We have confirmed dates at the end of August, but we've asked to meet earlier. We'll let you know what we hear from the employer. 

We've reached agreement on a large number of non-monetary proposals but were unable to agree on others and are at impasse on those. 

Now that the employer is looking over our monetary proposals, it's more important than ever that we show solidarity. The employer needs to know we are sticking together and will do what it takes to get the fair wages and benefits we deserve.

Great job wearing your solidarity buttons! When we work together we show Gateway we are strong and that we support the fight in the Thompson-Okanagan for living wages. 

A reminder that while we are in bargaining, our current collective agreement is in full force and we need to keep holding the employer accountable by enforcing that agreement. 

We'll keep you updated as talks progress. In the meantime, get the latest news from all casinos by signing into the BCGEU member portal at .


In Solidarity,
