Unfair Labor Practice reversed


“Starbucks must reinstate fired workers, federal judge rules”

"MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A federal judge is ordering Starbucks to reinstate seven employees in Memphis who were fired earlier this year after leading an effort to unionize their store.

In a decision issued Thursday, U.S. District Judge Sheryl Lipman agreed with the National Labor Relations Board, which had asked the court to intervene in May. The labor board said Starbucks violated U.S. labor law by interfering in workers’ right to organize."

In the meantime, non union stores coincidentally after the union efforts - got pay raises and will soon have a long requested TIPPING option for credit cards. (Those who have long decried inequality and said $15 an hour!") will have a mechanism to exceed goals, I am sure they are thrilled.

Wages, and labor practices - relevant parts of economics.
