Dodger Stadium concession workers threaten strike ahead of All-Star Game

Dodger Stadium concession workers have threatened a strike in the days leading up to the All-Star Game.

Unite Here Local 11, the union that represents those workers, announced in a news release on Monday that “99%” of the employees voted in favor of going on strike, adding that one could occur “at any moment.” A representative for Levy Restaurants did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Dodger Stadium will soon host its first All-Star Game in 42 years, beginning with the Futures Game on Saturday, the Home Run Derby on Monday and the main event on Tuesday. The Dodgers will navigate a five-game road trip ahead of the festivities.

Dodger Stadium concession workers are employed by the Chicago-based company Levy Restaurants, which, according to Unite Here, employs nearly 1,500 food servers, bartenders, suite attendants, cooks and dishwashers at Dodger Stadium. Unite Here Local 11, which represents 32,000-plus hospitality workers in Southern California and Arizona, didn’t provide specifics on the workers’ demands, saying only that it is “seeking to negotiate a fair new union contract.”

same union just threatened to strike Atlantic City casinos, just ahead of July 4 weekend and this week's NAACP national convention.

the casinos caved, strike averted.

less at stake here, actually.
but would be a good look, potentially - if the national media even notices.

Now you know why it's been 42 years since Dodger Stadium last hosted an All-Star Game!

BTW, the last ASG at Dodger Stadium (1980) is closer to Babe Ruth acting as a Dodgers coach than it is to today.

It's Levy...this could have happened anywhere. Levy under pays their employees everywhere, not just LA

Unite Here is a bag of dicks
