“One more day of smoking is one day too many.”
Under pressure from your Casino Union Health and Safety Team, Crown have confirmed they will maintain the current ban on smoking, into the new year!
This is excellent news for all of our workmates who had been concerned about returning to work in a smoking environment – and an example for all of us that we can make huge change when we work together in our union.
The next step is to work with the company to ensure Crown becomes permanently free of patron smoke.

United Workers Union delegate & HSR Chris Ball says:
“For many years we have advocated for the removal of indoor smoking at Crown Melbourne. Our people are exposed to the deadly risks associated with Environmental Tobacco Smoke or ‘passive smoke’, every day.”
“The existence of COVID-19 has reshaped our lives and workplaces and it will continue to. Previous norms have been abandoned. As a society we have shown we collectively value the health and safety of our people, above all else.”
“Crown has been allowed to endanger the lives of workers for decades.The time to eliminate the deadly hazard of passive smoke is now.”
