Workers at Starbucks stores across the United States went on a one day “Red Cup Rebellion” unfair labor practice strike November 17. Dozens of Starbucks locations were shut down nationwide.
“Starbucks thinks they can drag their feet in bargaining, and we’re here to show them we rebel against their tactics and we mean business – by shutting down theirs,” read a leaflet workers distributed in San Antonio.
Other demands include proper staffing of stores with the necessary amount of workers.
The workers are asking supporters to “join their fight by signing the #NoContractNoCoffee pledge to show Starbucks our communities support us too and donate to our Solidarity Fund to help us continue our efforts. Thank you!”
