EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS: Starbucks Spreads Anti-Union Lies In Forced Employee Meetings
Starbucks workers are exposing what’s happening in New York, where top executives are waging a brutal campaign to defeat the company’s first union.
More Perfect Union obtained new documents and details revealing Starbucks’ extreme tactics to defeat the company’s first union. Starbucks is flooding stores in Buffalo, NY, with top-level corporate executives trying to intimidate pro-union workers seeking to organize with Starbucks Workers United.
One worker who has been forced to attend an anti-union meeting told us, “They really stopped just a sentence short of saying, ‘If you join this union, there’s a chance you could go to jail.’”
On Thursday, Starbucks Workers United announced they won an NLRB decision to hold elections store-by-store. Mail-in elections will be held at three separate Buffalo, NY, stores, with ballots mailed November 10.
