Starbucks Workers United Strike at 100 Stores Nationwide

by Mike Elk,

Nationwide, workers at over 100 Starbucks stores walked out on a three-day-long strike in December. The strike comes as Starbucks has been cited multiple times by NLRB for refusing to bargain a first union contract with the workers.

“Starbucks sent a clear message when they closed the Broadway and Denny store,” Michelle Eisen, a Buffalo-based barista who has been a leader of the union campaign, said in a statement. “They’re doubling down on their union-busting, so we’re doubling down, too. We’re demanding fair staffing, an end to store closures, and that Starbucks bargain with us in good faith.”
