Starbucks workers plan strike on ‘Red Cup Day’ over stalled labor talks

November 17, 2022

Employees from more than 100 Starbucks stores plan to walk off the job Thursday, hoping to shutter shops for the day in protest of the company’s approach to union contract negotiations as the coffee giant launches holiday products. Leaders of Starbucks Workers United, which represents nearly 7,000 employees at hundreds of stores, say the company has not bargained in good faith and needlessly delayed talks on labor contracts. The company has countered that certain conditions for negotiations — namely, allowing union members to silently observe proceedings on Zoom — are impermissible.
