    Great Canadian Gaming Corp. says contingency plans are in place in the event of a strike at its casinos in Ontario.

    On Monday, Unifor said more than 2,000 unionized employees at eight GCG casinos in Ontario are set to strike on Friday if a new work agreement can’t be reached. Issues include wages, benefits, pensions and converting more part-time roles to full-time.

    In a statement to Global News on Thursday, Great Canadian Gaming said negotiations with Unifor continue.

    “Great Canadian Gaming continues to negotiate with members of Unifor and is committed to reaching an agreement that provides our team members with fair and attractive wages, benefits and careers,” the company said.
