SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — With baseball season is in full swing, 800 concession workers could go on strike at AT&T Park sometime in the next few weeks.
Negotiations fell apart last Thursday, just days after members of UNITE HERE Local 2 voted to authorize a walkout. A union representative said fans can expect to see concession workers who sell beer, popcorn and other food at the ballpark to be walking picket lines instead of the bleachers within a few weeks. The workers have not had a contract in three years.
Members of Local 2 authorized a strike on May 13th. Centerplate, which has the food vending contract with the San Francisco Giants, said the union walked out of negotiations.
