Hundreds of thousands of football fans have boycotted the NFL this season due to players protesting during the National Anthem.
The boycott has resulted in televisions being turned off, but those mad with the league and it’s players now have bigger plans.
Twin city transit workers have rejected a final contract offer and authorized a strike set for Super Bowl week in February. The work stoppage will begin when the festivities kick off and end after the big game on the 4th.
According to ESPN, the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1005 represents about 2,500 bus drivers, light trail operators and other Metro Transit workers. Members voted Sunday and Monday to reject the Metropolitan Council’s last contract offer by a 93 percent margin.
