B.C. Casinos Face Strike Issues as Union Membership Soars
Casinos across British Columbia are locked in a tug of war with unions over their workforce. This is something that has been brewing for a while across the province, and things seem to have hit breaking point recently. In fact, news broke earlier this month that union membership is soaring in B.C. at the moment. In fact, just last year close to 50% of all employees working in gambling industries had union membership. This is definitely a positive from the perspective of casino employees. They will feel as though they have big hitters in their corner who are looking out for their best interests. While on the flip side, casinos will worry about the disruption unions can cause to their daily running, not to mention their profits. Indeed, there have been several strikes across B.C. over the course of the year, with Hard Rock Casino employees recently striking for 10 weeks.
