And wouldn't taking your business elsewhere be the sweetest revenge at all? No customers, no tips, no business, equals no revenue and layoffs. That'd teach em, wouldn't it?


Took my business to Chances last night AGAIN ..

I wouldn't call it revenge rather than not bothering to support things I don't really agree with .. Simple enough for me ..

Oh , I tipped my server for the beer I had AND the slot attendant for the reserved ticket and changing the paper in the machine .
I payed attention in High school....But not to what they were trying to teach me..

I can assure you, other sectors are getting nothing near that. I'm looking at a whopping 2% per year.
My fervent hope is that you and your tax dollars will be reunited in the afterlife.

I assume that the closer to minimum wage you are, the more you will benefit from minimum wage increases. Employers that have historically paid a few dollars an hour more than minimum will likely have to continue that if they want to have a slightly better calibre of employee.

I doubt people being paid 30-35 dollars will be affected much.

You should be happy with 2% after 18+ years in a union job. You are likely maxed out on your classification and inflation has been below 2% for many years.

It might not be this year though.

From Jaybird
"I thought, as a BCGEU member for the last 18 years, and a steward for the last four or five, that I had a decent understanding of how this stuff works. But people who spoke very confidently (therefore must know more than I) were certain that the union was negotiating from a position of zero leverage, that they should be thankful they have jobs at all, and that despite running at reduced capacity, that Gateway was actually better off without their unionized staff and they ought to leave them hanging in the wind forever."

No use trying to argue with some of these people who replied to your post Jaybird. It seems to me alot of the same users come on Castanet looking for certain posts and criticize and no matter what the topic is. I Respect that they have an opinion but for some reason they won't even possibly won't even consider anyone elses opinion but their own. If it wasn't for unions companies would walk all over and abuse its workers just to make a buck. Amazon in the United States for example. Haters Gonna Hate! Congratulations on your contract win at the casino! SOLIDARITY!

I like the staff at Chances, right from the bartender to the person in the bingo cage to the people in the office. There's no reason to go back to Playtime where I have to fight traffic and parking.

Can we morph this into a postal strike thread. I hope those people go back to work soon. Christmas is coming. When i go to the post offices. I see so many Amazon packages. Canada Post should look to Amazon to supplement pay
Now they want to take our guns away . That would be just fine. Take em away from the criminals first . Ill gladly give u mine. "Charlie Daniels"

Pretty sure those Amazon packages you see are helping supplement pay. I don't think Canada Post is delivering those packages for free ....
More like Amazon should look into providing their own delivery service (which i believe they will be doing soon), then they can cut out Canada Post as the middle man.

Bingo - I would love to see the parcel division of Canada Post put out of business by a private organization who could do it cheaper and more efficient. Amazon sounds great

I ship a few hundred parcels a year. I find Canada Post to be cheapest and fastest.

It is already happening.
Canada Post has a pretty good delivery contract with legalization now I do believe.
