Dodgers News: Contract Discussions Resume to Avoid All-Star Game Strike
Dodgers fans had to be a little on edge this week with the news of a possible strike. Concession workers at the stadium had voted on the possibility and a whopping 99 percent of them were in favor. With the All-Star Game coming up next week, the timing of that would have been incredibly terrible.
But the good news is that the Union and Levy are back in discussions this week. Ideally, both sides would like to come to a resolution in time for the All-Star Game. No word yet from the Dodgers if they have a plan in place should conversations not work out for either side.

While the list of issues and demands from the concession side has not been made clear yet, the union is looking to raise the standard of living for employees. That would likely include better compensation for them. The Dodgers do not directly employ he concession workers.
