Casino Rama Employees Give Green Light to New 3-Year Contracts, Await 10-Percent Wage Jump

Casino Rama Resort employees gave their resounding Yes to the new three-year contracts that were negotiated last week essentially ratifying the tentative agreement. With the help of this improvement, they are going to witness a wage surge of more than 10 percent over the span of the following three years of operation in Orillia.
Following about four weeks of heated negotiations filled with long sessions of discussions, casino workers expressed their content with the final results they achieved. Unifor Local 1019, the labor union that led negotiations on the new contracts, protects Casino Rama’s employees’ rights. Gateway Casinos and Entertainment and the union dedicated around 18 hours to the last portion of conversation regarding the new contracts regardless of the general exhaustion. The result had to be consulted with the casino employees with the help of a vote.
Workers Ratify Tentative Agreement
The workers at the casino and the adjacent hotel had the chance to inspect the proposed tentative agreement and weight its pros and cons. This happened at a special gathering at the hotel where they had more than 15 hours to learn more about their future contracts of employment and how they are going to benefit from them. More than 1,400 individuals working at the location on a daily basis were curious to learn how their lives are going to change over the span of the next several years.
Once they knew more about the proposed tentative agreement, there was a vote where people had the chance to express their support of discontent with the potential improvements. Some 72 percent of them agreed that these conditions are much more favorable than the current ones and they would like to see them implemented on site of both the casino venue and the hotel tower. This is how they voiced their support and approval of the way things had went.
Unifor Local 1090 made sure that their rights are protected and their previously expressed demands are taken into consideration. This new agreement covers the years ahead of 2021, progressively increasing wages over the span of this period. Workers will be able to receive more than 10-percent surge of their payment which has been their goal all along. In addition to that, they will also see considerable improvements to their pension plan.
Unifor Local 1090 Wanted to Keep it Fair to Everyone
Up until this point, workers at the casino venue has been concerned that their payment and benefit packages are among the lowest ones in the regional field, a status quo that had to be changed. Apart from the wages increase, casino workers will also see the official end of benefit co-payments, another improvement to their employment contracts.
It should be taken into account that they would also see the retention of 10 emergency leave days as a result of the negotiated agreement. In order to keep matters fair and in alignment with working conditions in other Gateway Casinos’ location, the tentative agreement was negotiated in its current state. The requirement for this Saturday vote was that 51 percent of Casino Rama’s workers express their support of the tentative agreement.
The last session of discussions between Unifor Local 1090 and the casino operator lasted 18 hours until the wee hours of the morning. It was a heated one, as it extended past the original deadline for negotiations threatening to see employees take matters to the streets and go on a strike. The very first days of January saw them voice their 95-percent approval of a strike if their demands were not taken into account.

History in the Making: B.C. Promises CA$3 Billion in Allocations to First Nations over 25 Years

British Columbia Government issued its 2019 budget for the province and extensive information on it is now available for anyone interested in the details around it. There are many improvements coming with the new budget, among them, being the First Nations support that has been anticipated for quite a while now. British Columbia Lottery Corporation revenue is going to be shared with the First Nations and the first phase of allocations amounts to CA$300 million over the next three years, CA$3 billion over the next 25 years.
The arrangement has been anticipated and Indigenous tribes across the province were willing to see it come true, as it is projected to give them the needed financial boost for a wide variety of projects within their communities. The British Columbia government made a promise First Nations would receive regular allocations generated by lottery operation across the province and the entire arrangement was detailed in the budget for the following months.
First Nations Celebrate Decision
Finance Minister Carole James had the important task to introduce the budget for this year in Victoria, where he gave a detailed explanation and run through everything new it has on offer. Over the span of the following 25 years, First Nations would receive some CA$3 billion from British Columbia Lottery Corporation. This new agreement promises continuous support of the First Nations across British Columbia with allocations on an annual basis.
Every year, the lottery corporation would send each and every community financial support starting from CA$500,000. Some of them could receive up to CA$2 million per year, an amount that could be used for beautification works around the First Nation area or other projects in need of a financial boost. The said amounts of cash would be generated via the regular operation of the lottery corporation enjoyed by people of all ages.
Up until this point, the said 7-percent portion of the gaming revenue used to be sent to the general revenue and later on invested in other projects across the province. The overall number of Indigenous communities across British Columbia reaches 203, meaning that all of them would receive the allocations they are worthy of. As a result, infrastructure and environment projects are expected to see an improvement.

BC Budget: $3 billion over 25 years for First Nations in BC from Gaming Revenue.

Allocations of CA$500,000 to CA$2 Million per Year
This new arrangement is something First Nations has been looking forward to for many years now. Grand Chief Joe Hall, a former chair of the B.C. First Nations Gaming Commission, stated that for the longest time not enough funds has slowed down the process of development for Indigenous communities. British Columbia has been part of the conversation throughout the years as Nations sought to guarantee their development continues at a steady pace.
The Liberal government found it hard to agree with the proposed conditions. Now the NDP government is seeking to introduce a change. The First Nations Gaming Commission is going to facilitate the process of funding management and distribution via a limited partnership. The step marks a pivotal point of British Columbia’s development, as it follows the example of other provinces supporting their First Nations with regular gambling allocations.

#bcbudget19 announced gaming revenue sharing of $3 billion over 25 years. Or 7% of gross revenues. For 203 #FirstNations. Over 39 years of fighting for this. I was part of the team for 13 years in various capacities-Only prov in Canada that didn’t share. Now they do. #happyday
— Judith Sayers (@kekinusuqs) February 20, 2019

Judith Sayers, President of the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council, pointed out that Indigenous tribes have been fighting for this for nearly 40 years and 2019 would see the historical move, at last, bringing joy to the communities.

Blue Sky Bingo Draws Short Straw on Modernization ahead of Trying Times

Trying times are prone to test the community’s unity and its preparedness for action when the need arises. North Bay is now willing to help its bingo hall, which is going through a rough patch. Blue Sky Bingo is threatened by closing for business, as the province refuses to allow it to bring cGaming on site of the venue and improve its offerings.
Modernizing traditional gaming is a way for every location to remain competitive and a preferred entertainment option in an ever-changing gaming field. With so many offerings such as advanced casino locations, online gaming available in the comfort of players’ homes, and more, bingo venues have a rather vintage feeling to them. Introducing interactive bingo with touchscreen technology is crucial for many venues, perceiving it as a golden ticket for a gaming revenue surge.
Bingo Needs Innovative Offerings
March was a tough month for the bingo venues, as the Charity Gaming Federation of Ontario and Charitable Gaming and Bingo Innovation Association made it clear that the facility would not be among the bingo facilities benefitting from the innovative e-bingo platform.
The document included some locations offering traditional bingo action while omitting others and Blue Sky Bingo drew the shorts straw. The explanation behind this move was that Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation seeks upgrade of existing electronic bingo operation.
This meant that some 37 venues already offering modernized bingo action to their patrons are now eligible for a cGaming upgrade. In the meantime, venues still relying on traditional bingo offering would have to open conversation in the foreseeable future.
Once the e-bingo platform has been tested and approved as a reliable one in real life conditions, other bingo locations would be able to benefit from potential modernized offerings. Save Blue Sky Bingo is the organization that wants to prevent a devastating crash and burn of the local bingo scene. The venue is among the ten venues that have been excluded from the modernization wave.
cGaming Upgrade Would Not Reach Bingo Venue
Blue Sky Bingo owner John Rinn, stated that this move came as a surprise for the bingo management, as it pays taxes and strives to remain a reliable source of gaming excitement. The location supports more than 50 local charity organizations, the employment market, and a cGamign implementation would have introduced 30 more job positions to the existing ones.
In 2017 solely the venue was able to allocate some CA$1.2 million to the not-for-profit charity organizations in North Bay and the region. The venue would have to remain competitive in its offerings, as Gateway Casinos & Entertainment is planning to bring its brand new CA$31.3-million casino venue in the area, which would further complicate matters for the traditional bingo venue. Back in 2016 when the conversation about a casino venue first started, the bingo-funded organizations were concerned for their allocations.
In addition to the allocations, the bingo venue also sets aside some 10 percent of the bingo revenue for advertising and promotion of its offerings, equating to some CA$230,000 on an annual basis. Bingo operation is able to bring spectacular results in the long run, as it was confirmed by Jackpot City Bingo in Sarnia and its recent allocation reaching CA$5 million. As many as 100 Sarnia charitable organizations are going to benefit from this amount.

Gateway Casinos Purchases North Bay Land, Prepares for Groundbreaking

North Bay is about to get its first casino venue and its location is already known. Gateway Casinos and Entertainment announced its final decision to build its newest gaming facility in the area of Highway 11. The site of construction is going to be near the Nipissing Junction on Pinewood Park Drive in the south end of North Bay.
The controversy around the local habitat of Blanding’s turtles is still on the table. The official confirmation of the chosen site comes after weeks of anticipation, as the casino developer was carefully estimating the pros and cons of building on this particular site.
As it was confirmed, the casino complex is going to rise on a 7.3-acre land lot that would provide a constant flow of potential customers around the gaming venue and the more family-friendly offerings it features.
Casino Operator Awaits Municipal Nod
The casino operator has eyed the south end of North Bay and this choice appears to has the potential of transforming the local gaming field. The community is also projected to benefit immensely from casino operation, as it is going to receive gaming revenue allocations.
A mandatory next step would be the official green light given by local officials. Estimated time of construction would be this summer, giving the casino operator enough time to make the casino complex a dream come true. About a year would be needed for the construction of the CA$31.3-million casino location, as projections are that it would be ready to welcome its first casino patrons in the spring of 2020.
Cascades Casino North Bay is expected to bring some 14,100 square feet of gaming offerings meeting all expectations. The gaming floor itself is going to feature as many as 300 slot devices, in addition to some 10 gaming tables ready to meet everyone’s preferences. Gateway Casinos has yet to reveal more about the project and everything there is going to be up for grabs. Family-friendly offerings would feature the signature MATCH Public House and Eatery, as well as The Buffet.
Construction Will Start Soon
MATCH usually comes with a sports bar making the venue ready for potential single-event sports wagering regulation in the foreseeable future. Keith Andrews, Senior Vice President and Managing Director for Gateway Ontario, pointed out that the land has already been purchased and preparation for the next phases is underway. Work with Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation is in progress, as it would guarantee smooth progress.
Mayor Al McDonald stated that North Bay is ready for casino operation guaranteeing a steady income for hundreds of locals, as well as a flow of tourists and people from neighboring communities. It could be recalled that mid-January a group seeking protection of the so-called smiling turtles claimed that the new casino venue is going to destroy their existing habitat near Pinewood Park Drive.
Back then, the casino operator stated it is going to work with North Bay in order to find a mutually beneficial solution that would not harm the animals. The collaboration between Gateway Casinos and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry appears to have been productive and the official decision for construction site was issued. Ontario will soon greenlight a CA$4.5-million program protecting endangered species.
