Starbucks workers at a single location in Mesa, Arizona, voted to unionize, notching another win for a nationwide organizing drive that has quickly blazed across the coffee giant’s stores since two in the Buffalo, New York, area voted to organize this past December. The vote count, which had been postponed from last week, came just two days after the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled against Starbucks’s argument over the size of the eligible voting pool, writing in its order that a single-site union election was appropriate.
The NLRB announced the results on Friday afternoon, with employees voting overwhelmingly 25 to 3 in favor of organizing with the Starbucks Workers United (SWU) union, a branch of the Service Employees International Union affiliate Workers United, with three challenged ballots.
