Unifor will welcome more than 40 new members from the security department at the Pickering Casino Resort after they voted 97% in favour of joining. Local 1090 already represents workers on the casino gaming floor.
After a tragic workplace fatality among security personnel in October 2023, Local 1090’s gaming unit chairperson helped provide support and assistance.
“After an unspeakable tragedy, security workers at Pickering Casino Resort turned anger into hope and formed a union to better protect themselves at work,” said Lana Payne, Unifor National President.
A certification is expected shortly.
Unifor represents more than 9,000 workers in the gaming sector across Canada.
