Salt Lake City-Area Starbucks Workers Latest Seeking Vote to Remove SBWU

Utah Starbucks workers join other stores by filing decertification petition to remove “Workers United”

Employees at the Cottonwood Heights Starbucks in Utah have just submitted a petition to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), asking the federal agency to hold a vote to end the Chicago and Midwest Joint Regional Board Workers United/SEIU, also known as Starbucks Workers United (SBWU), officials’ monopoly “representation” powers at their workplace. Indya Fiessinger, who filed the petition on behalf of a group of her coworkers, is receiving free legal representation from National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys. […]

“We call on SBWU officials and the NLRB to respect the wishes of these workers who simply want a prompt decertification vote to decide whether or not they want the union in their workplace,” commented Mark Mix, President of the National Right to Work Foundation. “The right of workers to oust a union that lacks majority support is supposed to be fundamental to federal labor law, otherwise the NLRB is just protecting incumbent union bosses to the detriment of actual rank-and-file workers’ wishes.”
