Roughly 2,100 workers at MotorCity Casino and Hollywood Casino at Greektown have voted to ratify a new contract, ending a 34-day strike at the two properties. But those at MGM Grand Casino rejected the proposal and are continuing to strike.
The workers are members of the Detroit Casino Council, a union that represents 3,700 employees of Detroit’s three casinos. Membership at each casino voted separately on the offer. Those who voted to ratify the five-year contract will receive an immediate $3-an-hour raise and a $5-an-hour total raise over the course of the contract, according to the union.
The ratified contract also comes with workload reductions, technology protections, a 401(k) employer match program, and no health care cost increases.
