Ending a fight that lasted through three years and a World Series win, workers at the home stadium for the San Francisco Giants baseball team ratified a champion new contract recently. Local 2 members at AT&T Park stayed strong through strikes, civil disobedience, and a worker-called boycott of garlic fries and other concessions and now enjoy what may be the best stadium contract in the United States.
Workers won more comfortable and convenient rest and meal breaks; stronger protections for immigrant workers; seniority scheduling; and caps on workloads for suite attendants. They also won benefit and wage improvements that are tied to a strong hotel contract, including raises for both non-tipped and tipped workers, gratuity percentage increases for suites and catering workers, and pension contributions that will double over the life of the contract. Finally, the new contract also secures successorship with worker retention at the ballpark and automatic hiring at the new San Francisco 49ers football stadium.
