(en) US, Phoenix, July 5- Global Day Of Action Against Starbucks

Date Fri, 04 Jul 2008 22:47:15 +0300



When: Saturday July 5, 9:00 AM ---- Where: Starbucks, 420 S. Mill Ave., Tempe
(N/W corner 5th & Mill) ---- Following a call for support from Starbucks
employees in Sevilla, Spain and Grand Rapids, Michigan, along with the Starbucks
Workers' Union (part of the Industrial Workers of the World) and CNT-AIT union
in Spain, the Phoenix General Membership Branch (GMB) of the Industrial Workers
of the World (IWW*) will participate in the "Global Day of Action Against
Starbucks". ---- On Saturday, July 05, the Phoenix GMB of the Industrial Workers
of the World will stand in solidarity with Starbucks workers throughout the
nation and the world, calling customers' attention to worker grievances and
spreading awareness of the Starbucks Workers' Union among employees. The action
will take place at Starbucks, 420 S. Mill Ave., Tempe, at 9AM.

The call for a day of action against Starbucks comes on the heels of
recent firings by the coffee giant of workers trying to unionize, as
well as a litany of other failures on the part of Starbucks to improve
conditions for their workers. Most baristas earn far less than a
living wage and suffer from unsecured hours, making financial planning
impossible. In addition, Starbucks often greatly understaffs their
locations -- making them more profitable at the cost of overworked
baristas and unsafe working conditions.

In the face of such a staunchly anti-union corporation, the Industrial
Workers of the World, through the Starbucks Workers' Union, has been
the only union to successfully organize workers at several Starbucks
locations, in several states, winning higher wages, more stable hours,
and safer working environments.
