After meeting with the A’s for over a year the Culinary Union and the team have not struck an agreement in regard to card check neutrality. That means the A’s haven’t agreed to allow employees who might work at the planned stadium to be open and have the ability to unionize, Culinary Secretary-Treasurer Ted Pappageorge said in a statement Friday.

“That is concerning, especially since every baseball player on the Oakland Athletics’ roster is protected by a union contract,” he said. “Hospitality workers serving customers and players at any future stadium should also be protected and have a choice on whether to be union.”
