Students Stand with Starbucks Workers

Starbucks workers are engaged in one of the most visible, national organizing campaigns in decades. For more than a year, over 9,000 workers at over 380 Starbucks locations have voted, marched, walked out, and gone on strike to demand Starbucks respect their right to form a union.
Starbucks has responded with a brutal anti-union campaign of threats, intimidation, firings, store closings and refusing to meet workers at the bargaining table–becoming one of the most prolific union-busters in modern U.S. history.
Its relentless campaign of union busting, which has involved over 300 violations of federal labor law, according to administrative judges, including over 30 unlawful discharges– runs counter to Starbucks’ carefully-cultivated image as a progressive company.

Why is this important?

As the next generation of workers – and one of Starbucks’ key customer demographics – college and university students are standing up to major corporations like Starbucks to demand they stop exploiting their workers while denying them basic rights like fair wages, consistent work schedules, and the right to organize a union without intimidation or fear of retaliation.
