While the bulk of the staff at Caesars Windsor have returned to work, officials say there’s still more work to do as they prepare for the fall.

Back in March, unionized workers at Caesars voted 93 per cent in favour of a new three-year collective agreement, covering the roughly 1,800 workers at the casino.

With restrictions related to COVID-19 mostly lifted, one of the remaining issues involves the border and being able to get more visitors from the US back into the building.

Unifor Local 444 president Dave Cassidy says things are much better now than they were a year ago, but challenges remain.
