Hundreds of unionized Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) employees have gone on strike at Woodbine Slots and Racing after rejecting a tentative agreement.

It was the second time union members had voted against a proposed deal from management.

The strike began at 12:01 a.m. on Friday.

It will be mostly business as usual, but there will be no access to electronic poker machines or the courtesy shuttle. There will also be limited hours for coat check.
