OLG lockout shutting down Rideau Carleton Raceway Slots

The gaming floor employees, members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada, have been in a contract dispute with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation since early 2014, when negotiations for a new contract began.

“We find it very unfortunate that rather than try to reach a reasonable settlement at the bargaining table, the Slots has chosen to lock out its own workers,” said Doug Marshall, president of the Union of National Employees, a component of the PSAC. “I also find it hard to understand how an organization that generated $2 billion in net profit during the last fiscal year can’t find enough money to give its workers a raise.”
