Starbucks is giving the world a classic example of why we're demanding the rules be rewritten so workers who want a union can have one. On February 8th, almost the entire union organizing committee that formed at the Memphis, TN Starbucks / Poplar & Highland store was fired with flimsy excuses – a clear attack on their right to form a union.
Just a few weeks earlier – on January 17th, Martin Luther King Jr. Day – the organizing committee spoke with news outlets about their plans to join together in union.
"Starbucks is trying to silence us, but just let it be known, we will not be silenced," said Nikki Taylor, Starbucks Shift Supervisor in Memphis who is a member of the union organizing committee More Perfect Union.
