Business as Usual at Caesars says Unifor Local 444


It is business as usual at Caesars Windsor despite the casino being sold.

Eldorado Resorts is buying Caesars in a cash-and stock deal valued at $17.3-billion creating a casino giant.

Workers at Caesars Windsor are represented by Unifor Local 444 and union President Dave Cassidy was shocked when he first heard the news Monday morning.

After first being contacted by AM800 News, Cassidy called the company to find out details.

Cassidy says the name of the game now, is the status quo.

"Nothing has changed. It is business as usual, and we are going to continue doing what we do best, offering our great product and outstanding service."

Cassidy says there is a collective agreement in place and nothing changes for the workers.

"Everybody knows OLG owns the property and Caesars manages it, so as far as we are concerned in talking to the company, it is business as usual."

Cassidy says instead of being called "Caesars", it will be known as "Caesars Entertainment."

The deal announced Monday puts about 60 casinos and resorts in 16 states under a single name.
