Push for more Starbucks workers union votes

Starbucks has raised salaries three times in 24 months.

Employees of three Starbucks stores in Buffalo, New York, are trying to form a union so they can get more benefits over issues such as store shortages and worker training. The group, Starbucks Workers United, has petitioned the National Labor Relations Board to seek a union vote.

The company, which has no union in the 8,000 company-owned stores in the US, has said that it respects workers’ right to organize, but does not believe that a union is necessary because of its pro-worker policies.

In an effort to improve working conditions, Starbucks is updating its training guide and adding more training time for workers. It said it also plans to test an app that will let workers sign up for available shifts tailored to their schedules.
