420+ Union Stores

10,000+ Union Workers

Starbucks is one of the most profitable companies on the planet. As partners, we’re building a movement to have a real voice in determining and sharing that success. 

How We Got Here

How We Got Here

As partners at Starbucks stores across the country, we have long experienced understaffing, overwork, and a lack of say in our workplace. Meanwhile, Starbucks has raked in record, billion-dollar profits.

We started discussing the possibility of creating a better Starbucks: one embodying the values that inspired us to work here to begin with.

Meet Us

We’re not just baristas – we’re students, parents, forward-thinkers, and coffee fans united by the simple idea that we think Starbucks can be so much better when workers have a say in company and store operations.

We’re organizing because we know we can improve this company, transform our industry, and form a collaborative, creative, forward-thinking, justice-seeking, independent organization that allows us to advocate for ourselves.
