Starbucks Files a Labor Complaint Against Union Over Pride Month Decor Allegations

Starbucks fired back Monday at the union that represents baristas at hundreds of its stores, filing charges with the National Labor Relations Board over Starbucks Workers United’s allegations that dozens of its stores were not allowed to put up Pride month decor.

The charges come after employees of some Starbucks locations started picketing Friday in response to the claims. More than 150 stores pledged to join the strikes around the country, representing nearly 3,500 workers, Workers United said. Starbucks has more than 9,000 company-owned cafes in the U.S.

The union has alleged instances in at least 22 states where managers have told baristas they can’t decorate for Pride month in June, or where Pride flags were taken down. The company has said it has not changed its policies on decorations.
