A 47-day strike by casino workers in Detroit, Michigan is over after the group agreed to new contracts with MGM Grand Detroit.
The strike, which involved workers from MGM Grand Detroit, Hollywood Casino at Greektown and MotorCity Casino, began on October 17. At the core of the workers’ issues were poor wages, which had not been increased at the rate of local inflation, in addition to healthcare coverage.
The Detroit Casino Council (DCC) already ratified the agreement with a vote over the weekend. Casino employees will return to their job posts, and local casinos will offer their usual full complement of amenities.
