    The union representing Casino de Montreal dealers reached an agreement in principle with the employer Friday afternoon.

    The 545 unionized croupiers at the Casino de Montreal, who have been without a collective agreement since April 1, 2020, went on strike on May 21.

    The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), affiliated with the FTQ and the Société des casinos du Québec, declined to comment on the agreement’s contents. The full agreement will be presented to members at a general meeting in the coming weeks.

    “The union and management negotiating committees are satisfied with this agreement and are confident that it will also be to the satisfaction of the dealers,” said CUPE union advisor Jean-Pierre Proulx in a statement.
