Rally against union busting at Starbucks
March 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Starbucks is hosting a “Founders Day” event on Wednesday, March 22 to celebrate CUB (Chief Union Buster), Howard Schultz. So we’re gonna have a party that celebrates the real founders of Starbucks’ progressive values – the workers. Come show your support!
About the action
In 2022, Starbucks Partners formed Starbucks Workers United. Workers have joined together, raised their voices, cast ballots, and gone on strike to demand Starbucks respect their right to a union so they have a voice over pay, scheduling, and more.
Starbucks management, which posted $3.3 billion in profits last year, has responded with threats, intimidation, firings, store closings, and refusing to bargain in good faith–becoming the most prolific union buster in U.S. history.
NLRB judges have found at least 127 violations of federal labor law, with over 1000 more alleged violations still being adjudicated, for, among other things, threatening, intimidating, and firing hundreds of worker leaders. This runs counter to Starbucks’ carefully-cultivated image of a progressive company. Starbucks cannot be an industry-leading, forward-thinking employer AND the country’s leading union buster.
Join our celebration on Wednesday, March 22, at noon at Starbucks headquarters at 2401 Utah Ave S.
