MISSOULA - The Starbucks Workers United movement recently announced that the first Missoula franchise has officially joined the union.
The Organizing Committee of Brooks and Central in Missoula sent a letter to Starbucks' CEO Laxman Narasimhan stating their reasons for joining the union.
The letter says Starbucks Workers United’s core demands center around a right to organize, with a list of benefits including, a strong foundation of rights, health and safety, and wages and pay along with other benefits that the union offers.
