A group of Iron Workers, the most organized union in the industry, has decided to strike at Toys R Us stores in Los Angeles and San Diego, California, for the first time in more than 30 years.
The strike comes as Toys R US has seen a surge in the number of employees on its payroll.
The company has increased the number from a dozen employees in 2002 to about 200 now, and its parent company is making more in quarterly earnings.
According to the union, its members have been told to wear black T-shirts that read “I Am Iron Man,” a slogan they hope will become the new logo for the Toys R U union.
The group has also told employees to take a day off from work to strike.
“This is about a long-standing dispute between our union and the Toys Factory and the company,” said John Cawthon, a member of the union’s International Association of Ironworkers Local 3.
“Toys R Us has been very unresponsive to our demands.”
Toys &Garten, which is owned by Hasbro, has been a Toys R Toys store for more than 70 years.
Toys R&garten was founded by the Iron Workers union in 1967.
The union has been affiliated with Toys R & ;amp ;Garten since the 1980s.
“The toy store industry has been the epicenter of the American industrial revolution and has played an important role in our country’s prosperity and our nation’s success in the 20th century,” the company said in a statement.
“The union’s goal is to continue to provide a safe and healthy workplace, and to protect the health and safety of our members.”
Cawthun said the union is also concerned that the company is moving to eliminate jobs that were created by workers during the Great Depression.
“Toys are the backbone of the workforce.
If we lose this industry, the American economy will be a shell,” he said.
