Windsor Caesars Casino and hotel along the Detroit River in Windsor, Canada on July 8, 2016.

Caesars Windsor said it's postponing concerts and canceling hotel reservations through June 16 because of its ongoing labor dispute with the union representing its workers.

Blink-182, which was scheduled for June 2, Russell Peters, scheduled for June 15 and Cole Swindell, scheduled for June 16, have been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date, casino officials said.

Ticketholders can use their tickets on the new show dates or seek a refund once the labor dispute is resolved.

The casino's hotel has also canceled its reservations and is contacting guests to let them know. 

For information, call (800) 991-8888 or email vipservice@caesarswindsor.com.

It's the second time the casino has postponed concerts and canceled reservations since the strike started in April.

Last week, unionized workers at the casino rejected a tentative labor contract with the casino's management.

About 53 percent of the Unifor Local 444 members voted against ratifying the offer. Unifor 444 represents 1,345 full-time workers and 567 part-time employees at Caesars Windsor.
