Young children part of union wage protest to win hearts of Angels baseball fans

9/2/11, "Angel Stadium unions take fight to fans," OC Register, Eric Carpenter, "

SEIU is negotiating with the (Los Angeles) Angels, while Unite Here is negotiating with

  • Aramark, the company that handles food and beverage service for the stadium."...
  • "The membership of both unions has authorized a strike but neither union has called for one yet.
Union leaders tried to make it clear that they were not technically “picketing” on Friday, since employees still planned to report for work and they weren’t calling for fans to stay away....

We just want fans to know what the workers are facing and, hopefully, win their support if a strike is called.”

  • Reaction from fans was mixed."...
