Great Canadian Gaming Corporation has confirmed that certain departments at Casino Woodbine, which are represented by the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), have voted in favor of ratifying a new collective agreement for a four-year term.
“We truly value the ongoing commitment of our team members for making Casino Woodbine a great place to work and visit,” said the venue’s General Manager, Geno Iafrate. “Completing this four year deal with PSAC is another building block as we continue our significant development plan to transform Casino Woodbine into a world class entertainment destination.”
Explaining the rationale behind the agreement, Great Canadian said it remains committed to hiring local talent from surrounding neighborhoods as part of its Community Benefits Agreement with the City of Toronto. Casino Woodbine is owned and operated by One Toronto Gaming (OTG), a partnership between Great Canadian and Brookfield Business Partners to operate gaming facilities located in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
In August 2017, Great Canadian and Brookfield were selected as the successful proponents by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (“OLG”) to operate the three existing gaming facilities in the GTA, now branded as Casino Woodbine, Casino Ajax and Great Blue Heron Casino. OTG is also currently developing the Pickering Casino Resort, located in the eastern GTA.
