Heads up if you're headed to an upcoming concert or event at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

The union representing Aramark's food service and retail workers inside the arena just voted to authorize a strike (if necessary).

This could have effects on events inside the arena as early as this week. So yes, this includes Friday night's Nicki Minaj concert, an AJR concert, some of next weekend's WWE festivities, and several 76ers and Flyers home games.

"We're going to make it fair that when you do the same job for the same company in buildings right across the street from each other you can make the same wages," Kathy Hazel — a suite attendant in the Wells Fargo Center – said a video released by the union.

The strike could begin should negotiations with Aramark fall through at any point.

Aramark Says They're Negotiating with Workers

For their part, Aramark says they working with the union to reach an agreement.

"We have had several meetings with the bargaining committee in an effort to reach a new agreement, and we intend to keep working toward a settlement that works for everyone," an Aramark spokesperson told 94.5 PST and Townsquare Media in a statement on Tuesday afternoon.

It was not immediately clear how close to an agreement the two sides were as of Tuesday (March 26).
