Starbucks closing NY cafe in what union calls retaliation: report

Sharing is Caring!

The union representing Starbucks’ workers at a cafe in New York State claims the location is being closed by the company as retaliation for unionizing.

The Workers United union filed the complaint with the US National Labor Relations Board on Friday, accusing the company of violating federal labor law by announcing it will permanently close an Ithaca, New York store and alleged it was in retaliation for workers’ union activism, according to Bloomberg.

In response, Starbucks said the closure wasn’t related to the store recently being unionized, but resulted from facilities, staffing, and “time and attendance” issues at the store.
