Starbucks workers in Atlanta and all around the country are unionizing their stores! After working the front lines of the pandemic, these essential workers are demanding living wages, better hours, and a seat at the table. While Starbucks corporate wages illegal intimidation campaigns, workers need all the solidarity they can get from community members who support the union!
Are you a Starbucks worker wanting to get organized? Check out sbworkersunited.org to learn about the unionizing process and organize your store!
How You Can Support Starbucks Workers
1) Sign the Starbucks Workers Solidarity Petition
Pledge to stand up for the rights of Atlanta Starbucks workers to unionize, and urge Starbucks to bargain a fair contract by signing the Starbucks Solidarity Petition.
2) Visit Unionizing Stores and Order a “Union Yes” Coffee!
Visit your local Starbucks and let the workers know you’ve got their back! Use the name “Union Yes” when you order a drink, and remember to leave your tip in cash!
If you order coffee from the Starbucks app, make sure to rank your barista 5-stars! This helps prevent retaliation on the part of Starbucks management.
Adopt a Starbucks! Fill out this form to pledge to visit and support workers at a Starbucks location near you. Someone from the Atlanta DSA Labor committee will follow up with you!
