There could be labour peace at Lake City Casinos.

The B.C. Government and Employees Union has reached a tentative agreement with Lake City Casinos in Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton and Kamloops.

“Some of the highlights are three sick days and an increase for supervisors from $1.50 to $2 per hour when supervising,” said Karen Tankard, BCGEU communications officer.

The contract calls for a general wage increase of 27 cents in 2013, 27 cents in 2014 and 31 cents in 2015.

There would also be access to the BCGEU pension plan for all employees who meet eligibility requirements.

“Ratification votes are this week,” said Tankard.

“We should have results in early next week. We are recommending our members accept.”
