Would You Cross a Picket Line to Attend a Canucks Game?

Fans attending Vancouver Canucks home games — or the Juno Awards — might have to cross picket lines to get into GM Place, where close to 750 food and beverage workers will be in a strike position by Thursday.

Michelle Travis, spokeswoman for the members of Unite Here Local 40, said negotiations are continuing with Aramark Sports and Entertainment, but added a strike is a real possibility.

The particulars of the strike action and issues can be found in the Vancouver Sun. The Canucks are promising minimal disruption, but warns you can expect long waits for your beer & hot dog rations.

If a strike were to happen, picket lines might be set up as early as Friday night’s home game against the Los Angeles Kings. Would you be willing to cross that line? (Or perhaps the more important question is: Can you really manage watching a Canucks game without a steady and reliable supply of beer??)
