The employees are asking for reopening of installations as they are facing financial hardships
As explained by Monica Castro Canales, president of the Inter- company Workers Union, Sun Dreams Casino Holding, having approximately 350 workers are unable to understand why the casino is to remain closed, when the security measures stated by the World Health Organization have been met in order to prevent the contagion of COVID-19.
Shestates “Casinos are part of a hyper-regulated industry, here in Chile there is no industry with better or greater regulation, and in this case the Gaming Casino Superintendence does not allow us to operate in step four, which unfortunately is making us, workers, face difficult times,"
It’s worth mentioning that a letter was addressed to the Gaming Casinos Superintendent, Vivien Villagran, specifying that economic support for those who are still suspended to work will be able to be provided until October 31st.
This measure was put into action from the need of casinos, that don't have the economic resources to keep giving a paycheck to the suspended workers, in addition to the contributions that complement the amount received monthly from the AFC.
