News, Dodger Stadium concession workers get $10-per-hour raise as part of new contract : detailed suggestions and opinions about Dodger Stadium concession workers get $10-per-hour raise as part of new contract .
Three months after threatening to strike the All-Star Game, Dodger Stadium concession workers ratified a contract that provides what a union official called “truly livable wages” for the men and women who serve food, tend bar and wash dishes at the ballpark.
The wages for almost every one of the more than 1,500 workers covered under the contract will increase at least $10 per hour over the next two years, said Susan Minato, co-president of Unite Here, Local 11.
The contract between the union and Compass/Levy, the company that handles concessions for the Dodgers, was ratified Wednesday by 98% of voting members, union spokeswoman Maria Hernandez said.
“The Dodger team itself, they’re going to the World Series,” Minato said. “They’re going to win it. I am so proud, because the Dodgers and Compass/Levy have made our workers No. 1, too.”
