Starbucks bids to finalize all union contracts in 2024, with a caveat

Published December 8, 2023


The Seattle Times spoke to Erin Hatton about how Starbucks aims to finalize all union contracts in 2024 after stalled negotiations. Hatton notes the union movement came with a lot of excitement, as the retail sector has been largely overlooked because of high turnover, and Starbucks workers were leading a sense of renewal in unions. However, she continues to emphasize the need for consistency and agency in workers' schedules.
