Starbucks missed the deadline to send a union its arguments for opposing representation election petitions for workers at six upstate New York stores, according to a National Labor Relations Board regional director's order obtained by Law360 on Tuesday, saying a Microsoft Outlook crash did not excuse the untimely filing.
Workers in over one hundred Starbucks stores are unionizing and there will be more to come. As reported by LaborLab, Starbucks is responding by firing workers, holding captive audience meetings, and forcing other to attend intimidating one-on-three meetings where one worker is forced to sit down with management and corporate officers who have been flown in for the occasion.
Another tactic being utilized by Starbucks to slow the union campaigns sweeping stores is D-E-L-A-Y.
Starbucks has fired one of the leading union organizers in Buffalo: Cassie Fleischer. Starbucks has reportedly been using scheduling policy changes to terminate and remove pro-union staff members.
