Starbucks has been hitting its workers hard with a vicious union-busting campaign. It’s time for us to strike back!
Partners in the Pacific Northwest won’t tolerate union busting in our neck of the woods, and we are working hard to make sure Starbucks knows that.
Starbucks’s latest union-busting tactic, slashing workers’ hours well below what we can live on, has left many of us financially desperate. Starbucks is counting on this economic stranglehold to prevent its workers from using collective action to fight for our rights.
The purpose of this fund is to provide financial relief to Starbucks workers in the Pacific Northwest for income we lose as we take the collective actions needed to win the workplace we deserve.
We would like to reimburse workers 100% for their lost hours, but the actual percentage that we will be able to afford will directly reflect how much support we get from our community.*
We need PNW solidarity to stand up to Starbucks and prove that they are nothing without workers!
As we begin to distribute funds to stores that went on strike we will be using PayPal to reimburse partners for income lost due to collective action. The partners running this gofundme are all fellow Starbucks union organizers dedicated to managing the reimbursement process.
