Statement from Workers United and Starbucks Regarding Collective Bargaining Updates

Starbucks and Workers United remain committed to building a positive, productive relationship. This week, we conducted contract bargaining over a two-day session in Atlanta, Georgia. We made significant progress. Over the course of the two days, we discussed a broad range of topics, including a shared commitment to mutual respect, the process to resolve grievances, and details relating to the union’s representation of partners as both sides worked on the foundational framework that will contribute to single-store contract negotiations and ratification.

There’s more to do, but we are committed to working together. As a next step, we will meet again in late May to continue work on the framework intended to be the foundation of each single-store contract.
