Red Cup Day: About Starbucks Employees Strike

  • Representatives of Starbucks Workers United claim that lack of staffing is just one of the problems that led to the so-called Red Cup rebellion, a nationwide walkout in which more than 100 stores set up their own picket lines.
  • As the two parties attempt to hammer out new contracts, Serrano claims that the walkout is meant to pressure Starbucks to negotiate with workers in good faith.
  • The union claims that the business has retaliated against union leaders, Starbucks lawyers have skipped negotiation sessions or requested last-minute rescheduling’s, making it difficult for members to engage.
  • The employees’ union contests that it is a real obstacle. All they are doing, according to them, is include union members on Zoom calls, which is legal, they argue.

Leaders on the picket line are attempting to sway patrons who might not be in favour of the strike if it affects their ability to obtain a red cup. A crimson cup with the Starbucks Workers United logo on the front that was developed by a union is being offered as an even more unique commemorative souvenir.
