Unifor and Niagara Casinos

Unifor is the union for gaming workers. We represent workers at new casinos, established casinos, casinos that are changing hands, and those run by outside operators. 

Across Canada, gaming workers are looking at their fast-changing industry and deciding that they need the voice in their workplace that a union can provide – and more than any other union, they are choosing Unifor.

Unifor is Canada's largest union in the private-sector with 315,000 members, including more than 20,000 members in gaming and hospitality. 

Of that, the 9,000 gaming workers represented by Unifor work in all areas of the industry, including table game dealers, slot workers, food and beverage staff, environmental services, parimutuels, finance, cashiers and main bank, gift shops attendants, hotel, valet, entertainment staff, security and maintenance.
