Workers at Buffalo Starbucks Win Historic Union Election
Baristas at the Elmwood Starbucks in Buffalo, NY declared victory yesterday in the first union election in the history of the coffee giant. Workers voted in favor of unionizing by an overwhelming majority in the face of an aggressive anti-union campaign by Starbucks. Ballot counts and related challenges are still being finalized in elections at other area Starbucks locations. These workers will now be members of Starbucks Workers United, part of Workers United, an SEIU affiliate. Read more here, and watch video of the moment workers realized they had enough votes here!
