As Employees of Joe Louis Arena and Olympia Entertainment, we have worked for the Detroit Red Wings and Mike & Marian Ilitch over the past thirty-eight years. We are the hardworking employees that made coming to “The Joe” a first rate experience for fans. We are the ushers, security guards, souvenir stands, concession stands, bartenders and beer vendors that provide great service.

Mr. Ilitch was a big idea business man and a hands-on-leader who was dedicated to his employees, players and franchise. We all shared in the joys and heartaches of the Red Wings quest for the Stanley Cup. We will never forget Mr. I raising the cup for the first time.

Now excitement and buzz is felt everywhere about the new Little Caesars Arena for the 2017-18 season. We can’t wait to see our team on the ice for the first time but uncertainty about our jobs has us very concerned. Delaware North Companies will be managing many facets of the new Little Caesars Arena and because of this many of our jobs are in jeopardy. We have always had unison with the Ilitchs under a collective bargaining agreement and we strongly urge Chris Illitch and Delaware North Companies to honor that agreement by employing Joe Louis Employees with our current seniority and pay scale intact. 

We support Joe Louis Arena Employees' demand that their current jobs, seniority and pay scale be honored at the new Little Caesars Arena.
