A trade union representing concessionaires on Dodger Stadium agreed on Friday not to strike during the Major League Baseball All-Star Game and related events.
Unite Here Local 11 and concessionaire Compass Group and its subsidiary Levy Restaurants made what kind of union said “substantial progress” in contract negotiations this week.
As a result, the union agreed not to strike during the All-Star Game, which starts on Saturday and ends with a game on Tuesday night.
“Both sides look forward to a successful All-Star Game and continued negotiations,” union spokeswoman Maria Hernandez said in a statement.
The union is pushing for what it calls a “fair new contract” although it has never given details of its demands. It says Unite Here members had previously voted to sanction a strike during the All-Star Game celebrations.
Levy employs about 1,500 waiters, bartenders, cooks and dishwashers at the stadium, which is hosting the All-Star Game for the first time since 1980.
The union represents more than 32,000 hotel workers in Southern California and Arizona.
