WHAT DOES SIGNING THIS CARD MEAN?

Joining our campaign means becoming part of a community centered around the shared goal that unionized and not-yet union partners have: making Starbucks a better place to work. 

Once you sign a card, you may be contacted by an organizer who will connect you with other partners in your area. We can help you assess how involved you’d like to be. 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • How does this benefit me? 

    • When you join our movement, you’ll be welcomed into a community of partners who take on workplace problems together, share organizing, legal, and other resources, and build lasting friendships.

  • Does signing this mean my union support will be public? 

    • No. Being public about your support will always be your decision. We will not share the information provided on this card with Starbucks without your permission. 

  • Can I share this with my coworkers? 

    • Yes! Feel free to share with coworkers you know you can trust. 

  • What if my store isn’t ready to organize? 

    • That’s ok! Joining in this way is an individual commitment, not a commitment on your store’s behalf. But, linking up with the movement can give you the resources and skills to organize when your store is ready. 

  • Will I have to pay dues? 

    • No! Right now, no Starbucks worker, union or non-union, is paying dues. Ordinarily, dues only come into play at unionized workplaces once a union contract is ratified by a majority vote. 

  • Will I be covered by the union contract? 

    • While Starbucks is only obligated to negotiate a contract at stores who won their union elections, being a part of the fight will benefit all Starbucks workers!
