Although over 350 Starbucks Coffee stores around the country have voted to unionize, the company’s CEO and management have failed to come to the negotiating table to discuss workers’ concerns. Starbucks Workers United called for support actions on Sept. 14 for the morning rush hour.
Pictured here is the customer support action team at the Perry Hall, Maryland, store. Support team members collected 80% of the requested signatures during the hour-long petitioning effort. Team members were able to talk to customers as they waited in the drive-thru line, which continuously wrapped around the building the entire hour. There were only 7 workers staffing not only the drive-thru line but also the walk-in customers.
