Five Starbucks Locations Have Filed to Unionize Over the Past Six Days

From Truthout News | Economy & Labor by Sharon Zhang

Starbucks workers are filing to unionize at a fast pace, with employees at five Starbucks locations in five different states having filed for a union election over the past six days.

Workers in Eugene, Oregon, filed to unionize last Friday. Locations in Chicago and Cleveland soon followed with their filings. On Tuesday, workers in Hopewell, New Jersey filed their petitions; and, on Wednesday, workers at the North Monroe Street location in Tallahassee, Florida, also filed for a union.

Tallahassee workers’ filing brings the total number of stores that have filed to unionize over the past months to roughly 18, with seven of those filings in just the past two weeks.
