Starbucks can be unionized now

From Starbucks Workers Union

A settlement between Starbucks Coffee Co. and the National Labor Relations Board over labor practices opens the way for a union to organize coffee shop employees, a union representative said on Wednesday

The Industrial Workers of the World, or IWW, was not part of the settlement, although its charges of unfairness led to an NLRB investigation.

The IWW, AKA the Wobblies, and were one of the legendary unions of the early 20th century. I’m glad they’re active and organizing.

Read on. Do hot coffee and ‘Wobblies’ go together?
