BUFFALO, NY – Starbucks is accused of
Federal labour officials charged Starbucks with unfair labour practises in Buffalo, New York, including retaliation against pro-union employees.
In a request for reinstatement and back pay, the National Labor Relations Board's Buffalo regional director listed numerous labour law violations.
The coffee chain called the charges “false” and promised to fight them in court.
This is not a finding of fact by the NLRB,” spokesman Reggie Borges wrote in an email.
“It is the start of a legal process where both sides can be heard and evidence presented.”
STU said the complaint "confirms the extent and depravity of Starbucks' conduct in Western New York for over a year."
“Starbucks is finally being held accountable for their union-busting rampage,” said fired shift supervisor Danny Rojas.
