·1 min

Starbucks announced on Tuesday its plans to engage in discussions with the Workers United union regarding bargaining agreements and union organizing. The company expressed its commitment to establishing a framework that facilitates collective bargaining agreements, a fair organizing process, and the resolution of ongoing litigation. Additionally, Starbucks has agreed to extend the May 2022 benefits to partners represented by Workers United, including credit card tipping. This move comes after Starbucks faced strikes and criticisms for its handling of unionization efforts. The National Labor Relations Board has been involved in addressing allegations of illegal practices by the company.
