Caesars Windsor hotel to close for 29 hours
Casino says it's trying to 'proactively prevent any inconvenience' during Unifor Local 444 ratification vote
Caesars Windsor hotel will be temporarily closed and suspend the reservation of rooms for 29 hours beginning Tuesday morning.
A voice mail immediately notifies potential customers of the temporary closure, scheduled to happen between 11 a.m. Tuesday and 4 p.m. Wednesday.
The hotel will not be taking reservations during that time, either.
The voice mail says the closure and suspended service is to "ensure total guest satisfaction" and "proactively prevent any inconvenience" as workers represented by Unifor Local 444 vote on whether to ratify a tentative new contract, reached late Thursday night last week.
The message goes on to say the hotel "will not be accepting any new reservations for Tuesday, April 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in preparation of the unlikely event there is an unfavourable outcome from a ratification vote.”
The gaming floor will remain open.
Last week, the hotel closed as the end of the previous collective bargaining agreement neared. Guests were shuttled to the Days Inn and gamblers were asked to leave when the casino shut its doors at 9 p.m.
