River Rock Casino Resort update on bargaining

The BCGEU and River Rock management met on June 10th to table proposal packages for a first collective agreement. Comprehensive packages have been tabled by both parties, although the monetary issues will not be addressed until after the non-monetary issues have been considered.

Negotiations have moved slowly so far as there is a lot of detail to work through on the non-monetary items. The parties met separately on June 13th, 14th and 15th to review the other’s proposals.

More bargaining dates have been set for June 22nd, 23rd and 24th, when two new members will be joining the Bargaining Committee from Culinary, Security and Shipping/Receiving.

We'll keep you updated as negotiations progress.

In solidarity
