Workers at a Chipotle restaurant in Maine are seeking to form a union. If their campaign is successful, they would be the first group of Chipotle employees to unionize.
In an April letter to Starbucks employees, interim Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz alluded to "outside union forces" in the organizing campaign, and the company noted that one organizer, Jaz Brisack, was on the payroll of Workers United, a branch of the Service Employees International Union. The National Labor Relations Board is asking a federal court to order Starbucks to stop using what the federal agency calls an "array of illegal tactics" aimed at workers involved in unionization efforts at the coffee chain's stores. The NLRB's petition, filed Tuesday in a U.S. District Court in western New York, is the board's third against the company since workers at a Starbucks store in Buffalo in December voted to join a union — a first for the retailer's nearly 10,000 company-owned stores in the U.S. At least 151 stores have since voted to unionize, and more than 289 stores have filed with the NLRB to hold elections. In its most recent filing, the NLRB called on the court to order Starbucks to reinstate seven Buffalo workers that the agency contends were illegally fired for trying to form a union. It also wants the court to require Starbucks to negotiate with a store whose union election was harmed by what the panel says were the company's anti-union efforts.

Federal labor regulators have asked a court to force Starbucks to stop what they say is extensive illegal activity in response to a nationwide campaign in which workers at more than 150 corporate-owned stores have voted to unionize. In a petition filed Tuesday with U.S. District Court in Buffalo, officials with the National Labor Relations Board accused the company of firing and disciplining union supporters; intimidating and threatening workers to discourage them from voting for the union; and effectively offering benefits to workers if they opposed the union. The agency is also seeking the reinstatement of seven Buffalo-area employees whom, it said, Starbucks had illegally forced out in retaliation for their union-organizing activities, and an order effectively recognizing the union in a Buffalo-area store where the union lost a vote despite strong initial support.
Ever since Microsoft announced its intention to acquire Activision Blizzard for nearly $70 billion, stories about toxic workplace culture and mismanagement have spilled out — rightfully so. Kotick’s seat wasn’t the only recent affirmative vote from Activision Blizzard shareholders. There’s been some proper good news out of Activision Blizzard recently too. Next up for the union is negotiating its contract with Activision Blizzard at the top level, something that may be hindered by Bobby Kotick’s continued regime. New York City is suing Activision Blizzard, specifically targeting Kotick by claiming he’s rushing the Microsoft deal to escape culpability for the many controversies at the company.
Freed From Management’s Watchful Eye, Starbucks Workers Go Union One reason that Starbucks union drive has been so successful is its stores’ relative lack of managerial supervision. Our stores are so close to unionizing but to prevent it from spreading to other districts they cut us off from the rest of the company.” Starbucks Believes Multistore Bargaining Units Would Kill the Organizing Campaign Starbucks has repeatedly, and unsuccessfully, tried to get the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to sanction multistore bargaining units, in the belief that this would undermine organizing. One big union-avoidance firm wrote, “Had Starbucks prevailed in that argument, it may have been able to get more baristas who were not in favor of a union to participate and change the outcome.” Another stated, “Starbucks knows it has the votes if you include all of the stores that it seeks to include.” Union-avoidance law firms have long sought to manipulate bargaining units to undermine worker organizing, usually by padding the unit with employees they believe will vote against the union. Just as the Starbucks Workers United campaign has been rewriting the rules of union organizing, so too Starbucks HQ and its law firm have been rewriting the rules of union busting. If the board were to accept a three-store bargaining unit —though, given Starbucks’s national pattern of unlawful anti-unionism, it shouldn’t — Starbucks should not be allowed to combine further individual stores into a single unit, and its future plans to combine more stores should be considered deeply suspect.

“We are pleased to offer very strong compensation and benefits for full time and part time employees, including health care, tuition reimbursement, new parental leave, paid family leave, annual stock grants and many other benefits.” Reason for Starbucks Store Closure Questioned by Union Starbucks officially closed one of the three unionized Ithaca stores due to a faulty grease trap, which had caused the union to go on a one-day strike in April 2022 over unsafe working conditions. The organization is alleging that Starbucks closed the store to retaliate against worker activities that are protected by labor laws, and also alleges that Starbucks acted in violation of its legal obligation to bargain with the union over store closures. “Our local, regional, and national leaders have been working with humility, deep care and urgency to create the kind of store environment that partners and customers expect of Starbucks.” The closure of one store may have a negligible effect on the wider unionization of Starbucks locations. However, Starbucks reportedly closed an Ithaca, N.Y. store in retaliation for its voting to unionize, according to NPR. A Starbucks union committee is reportedly filing an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board, according to NPR.
