Starbucks baristas staged one-day strikes Monday at one of the chain’s Baltimore coffee shops and at other Maryland and Virginia stores to protest what the newly unionized workers say have been delays in negotiating labor contracts. “We’ve been trying … to sit down with Starbucks and bargain on behalf of our union, and Starbucks has just been pulling shady stuff to get out of it,” said Alex Boyd, a shift supervisor at Starbucks in Baltimore’s Mount Vernon neighborhood.
