According to ABC 7 Chicago, United Centre concession workers have voted for a strike. Per the report below, the workers who work for the Levy Company feel that they are not being paid enough for their work. This vote means that a strike could happen at any time.

A statement from the union representing the workers said, "They make the experience for the fans memorable. Unfortunately Compass/Levy is not offering all of them the wages, healthcare and benefits they deserve. Workers are ready to do whatever it takes."

"We are committed to working diligently with Local 1 to reach an agreement during the next bargaining sessions scheduled for mid-February. Should a strike occur, Levy will continue to provide food and beverage at United Center events to ensure the fan experience is not interrupted", the union said.




CHGO_Blackhawks podcast host Jay Zawaski clarified on Twitter that the concession workers were striking against Levy, not the Blackhawks or Bulls. This strike would not directly impact the sports team in any way.


The Blackhawks do not play until Feb. 7, so Hawks fans have nothing to worry about for now. Let us hope they can settle the matter before then.
