I’m not a big fan of shelling out $6.00 for a cup of coffee, but you can serve me all of this Frappuccino you want:
“A US judge ordered Starbucks to reinstate seven workers in Tennessee who say they were sacked in retaliation for pro-union
It is a victory for labour regulators, who sued Starbucks over the sackings, arguing that restoring the jobs was key to prevent future labour violations.
Starbucks denies retaliation. It said it would appeal against the decision.
Judge Sheryl Lipman said regulators had presented enough evidence to suggest labour law violations had occurred.
She said reinstatement was “just and proper” whilst the claims worked their way through the judicial process, which can take years.“
Somehow, I don’t think these happy workers are worried about how long the case will take to conclude:

Starbucks claimed the seven employees were fired for cause, gee… judge, it had nothing to do with union busting.
National Labor Relations Board lawyers argued otherwise.

Fetterman’s in the fight, you Starbuckers should just give up…
Starbucks union-busting tactics continue to be disgusting + unacceptable
Every PA worker should be able to join a union without fear of retaliation 💯 https://t.co/xTpy4xgoQp
