Dear community members, cherished regulars, and union siblings:
In less than one year, we have grown from zero to over 200 unionized Starbucks locations and we could not have done it without your support. Now, we are fighting for our first contract and we need you more than ever. Across the nation workers have been stood up, walked out on, and ignored at the bargaining table. It is clear that Starbucks does not want to bargain with us in good faith – as required by law.
We are asking you to please join us on the picket line, wherever is nearest to you! We will have our own SBWU red cups for our community supporters until supplies run out! The following stores will be on strike for Red Cup Day and will return to work the next day.
If you can’t join us in person, there are plenty of other ways you can support our action. The most urgent request is to donate to our strike fund. You can also help spread the word by posting on social media the day of our action. Please do not share information about which stores are going on strike until tomorrow morning!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out!
Starbucks Workers United – Massachusetts
