Starbucks Waterloo Town Square workers have voted by a wide margin to join the United Steelworkers (USW) union.
“Today, Starbucks Waterloo workers made history by becoming the first unionized Starbucks location in Ontario. The employees took a bold first step in improving their workplace and they won! Starbucks pulled out all the stops trying to pursue these employees to vote no to the union but the workers stood together and stood strong in the face of this intimidation. Their bravery is an inspiration to others,” said Darlene Jalbert, USW District 6 Organizing Co-ordinator.
