Pickets Remain Up at Casinos

Talks have once again broken off between the Union and Gateway Casinos.

Since late June, nearly 700 employees of Gateway Casinos in Vernon, Kelowna,  Penticton, and Kamloops have been on strike for higher wages .

This was the fifth attempt at mediation, but the BCGEU says they have yet to hear an offer that they're happy with.

No further talks are scheduled at this time, but the Union is expected to make a statement sometime later this week.

The striking casino workers were recently hit with an injunction, prohibiting them from demonstrating on public property.
