At long last, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is being held to account for his company’s union-busting tactics.
Union members with Starbucks Workers United (SBWU) reacted with surprise, excitement, and a sense of vindication to the news that Schultz will be appearing under oath in front of a U.S. Senate committee on March 29. “[It’s] huge,” Boston-based barista Tyler Daguerre tells The Progressive. “We haven’t been able to get Howard to move like that.”
Under Schultz and other company leaders, Starbucks has engaged in anti-union attacks dating back to the 1980s, when they successfully pushed out a United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) union.
