A group of Starbucks workers organizing with the
Industrial Workers of the World* have sparked a
national campaign to unionize the world’s largest
coffee chain. The workers and their allies have a
vision of a groundbreaking union campaign that
seriously challenges prevailing organizing paradigms.
Instead of a select group of staff organizers taking
on Starbucks, it will take a social movement to defeat
this company. Imagine for a moment a fighting union
of retail workers and what a constructive force in
society that would be.

There is no doubt that a multi-dimensional approach to
organizing Starbucks must include a student-led
strategy. Given the characteristics of Starbucks’
employment model, students are uniquely positioned to
make a substantial contribution to this campaign.

A national student coordinating body is forming to set
the overall strategic direction of the effort. Please
sign onto the organizing list at
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/starbuckscampaign to get
involved. For more information, please contact the
Campaign at starbuckscampaign@yahoo.com. To learn
about the Starbucks Workers Union, check out

Finally, if you plan to be in New York during the
Republican National Convention, please join the
Campaign, the Starbucks Workers Union and Rev. Billy
in a march from the Starbucks at 36th and Madison in
Midtown Manhattan (6 train to 33rd St.), where workers
first announced the Union, to the Starbucks Regional
Headquarters at 33rd and 5th Ave., where the company
coordinates its anti-union campaign, at 2:00 pm on
Saturday, August 28.
