Concession workers at San Francisco Giants’ Oracle Park vote to strike

Concession workers at the San Francisco Giants’ Oracle Park on Saturday voted overwhelmingly to strike, citing concerns over COVID-19 safety and health coverage.

According to UNITE HERE Local 2, at least 20 concessions workers have contracted COVID-19 since the stadium reopened this season. According to the union, 96.7% of active stadium workers voted to strike.

The workers are employed by Bon Appetit, a company contracted by the Giants. They worked Saturday night’s 6-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers at Oracle Park and union president Anand Singh said they will also work Sunday’s series finale.

“Ballpark food service workers’ 96.7% vote yesterday to authorize a strike shows that we’re ready to do whatever it takes to win health care, hazard pay, and safety on the job,” Singh said in a statement Sunday. “We’re going back to the negotiating table on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of next week, and workers will report to work for today’s game.
