    Casino workers in Niagara have turned down the Canadian Auto Workers union in its fifth attempt to form a union at Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara, casino management said Monday.

    Results show 63% of casino workers who voted in the certification vote, said no to the CAW, a statement issued by the casino’s communications department Monday afternoon states.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Casino workers in Niagara Falls won’t know until at least Wednesday whether the Canadian Auto Workers was successful in getting certified as the union representing 2,900 Fallsview Casino and Casino Niagara workers, says CAW organizer John Aman.

    It has been two weeks since most frontline casino employees voted after the CAW applied for certification as their bargaining agent.

    “We will have a much better idea after the 12th where this thing is headed,” Aman said Thursday.

    May 12 is when the Ontario Labour Relations Board has scheduled a meeting with the CAW and casino management to try to resolve differences they have over which workers should have been eligible to vote and who should be included in the proposed bargaining unit.

    Slow times blamed for 45 job cuts at casinos

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Casino Niagara and Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort cut 45 jobs Tuesday in one of the biggest single-day reductions since the casinos opened.

    Three pit managers and 42 table games supervisors were let go, as the casino dealt with what it called “a consistent overstaffing situation.”

    “This overstaffing situation was unique to the table games department,” said Art Frank, president of Niagara Casinos, the company that manages the two government-owned casinos in Niagara Falls.

    The casinos had more supervisors and pit managers than they needed, due to “limited business growth prospects,” a reconfiguration of the gaming floor and a new scheduling process, casino management said in a one-page statement after The Niagara Falls Review asked about the changes.
