have launched a union campaign looking
to improve compensation and safety. .
According to workers, safety concerns are a big reason Medieval Times employees in Lydhurst, New Jersey are trying to form the chain's first union.

On July 15, knights, squires and stablehands
will vote on whether or not to unionize. .
The vote will be overseen by the
National Labor Relations Board.

Medieval Times has opposed the formation
of a union by their employees.
If the union is successfully formed in
New Jersey, the campaign could spread to other
Medieval Times locations throughout the country.

operates nine locations around the U.S.,
and another location in Toronto, Canada.

amid a tight labor market has contributed
to a number of safety concerns. .
