Pickets Remain Up in Casino Strike

A spokesperson for Gateway Casinos says the company is hoping talks can soon resume with unionized workers.
Hundreds of casino workers are on strike across in Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton and Kamloops.  Pickets went up Friday afternoon.

Tanya Gabara says Gateway is hoping the B-C Government Employees Union will agree to meet for mediation next Monday through Wednesday with both a mediator and the B-C Labour Relations Board.

Union workers tell us they have agreed to mediation talks beginning Monday.
