Unionized Burgerville workers walked out on strike on Friday, Aug. 10.
The strike impacted the Montavilla, Hawthorne and SE 92nd and Powell locations, KOIN 6 News reports.
On April 23, 2018, the Burgerville in Southeast Portland made history when it became the first federally-recognized fast food workers union. Other Burgervilles followed.
"We understand that we are not meeting every employee's expectations or needs," company officials said in a statement on Tuesday. "Burgerville has been negotiating with the Burgerville Workers Union on several fronts and will continue to do so in good faith."
A bargaining session earlier in the week was rescheduled by company officials after the union called for a strike to begin at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
