Possible Strike at Three Woodbine Entertainment Group Locations

    TORONTO, Dec. 4 /CNW/ - One hundred & eighty bartenders and servers
represented by the CAW at three Woodbine Entertainment Group locations will be
on strike as of 4:00 p.m. today if an agreement with the employer cannot be
reached. Negotiations have been ongoing since mid-September.
    "The company has tabled a list of concessions and seems to be provoking a
dispute," said Hemi Mitic, Assistant to CAW National President Buzz Hargrove.
    The strike would take effect at both Woodbine and Mohawk Racetracks and
at Greenwood Teletheatre located at Kingston & Queen Street, Toronto and will
also affect beverage services at OLG Mohawk and Woodbine Slots operations.
    "In an environment where the employer is reaping greater profits, it's
time to share that with the workers who make it all happen," Mitic added.
    Picket lines will be set up at all locations in the event of a strike.
