River Rock Casino Bargaining Update

To:     All BCGEU Members at River Rock Casino Resort
Re:     Bargaining Update


Your Bargaining Committee met with your Employer on September 26th and 27th, as negotiations continue for River Rock’s first collective agreement. You will have the chance to vote on the new agreement once the negotiations are complete and your bargaining committee can recommend a first collective agreement.

The collective agreement is in sections, like the chapters of a book. Each section deals with a different type of working condition or entitlement. The collective agreement is like a set of laws for the workplace that must be followed.

Progress is being made at the bargaining table. Your bargaining committee has reached agreement with your Employer on the following union proposals. They will become part of River Rock's first collective agreement:

  • Union Security: Your membership with the BCGEU is protected.
  • Union Bulletin Board: Your Employer will provide a bulletin board at River Rock for the Union to keep you informed.

Bargaining is set to resume October 17th with multiple dates scheduled towards the end of October. When talks resume, rest assured your committee will keep you updated on a regular basis.


In solidarity,

Your Bargaining Committee: Cherry Huang, Hayman Sung, Harvinder Jaswal, San Chen, Glenn Matheson, Zenaida Ordonez, Watson Tseng, Eric Escobar
