Starbucks workers across hundreds of stores will go on strike for a day to protest the lack of a first contract despite a two-year organizing drive. This strike, unlike recent strikes by other unions, will only last for a day but is significant in the union's efforts to secure a contract. The strike also highlights the increasing union activism in American workplaces. Although the union has won representation votes at various Starbucks locations, there are still no contracts in place for the union members. This is the second consecutive year that the union has organized strikes during Starbucks' "Red Cup" day promotion. While some stores have remained open during past strikes by replacing striking workers with non-union workers, the union believes that picket lines help convey their message to sympathetic customers. Starbucks workers in St. Louis plan to shut down their unionized locations during the strike. The company and the union blame each other for the lack of progress in negotiations. Limited duration strikes have become a common tactic for unions to assert their influence, with recent strikes resulting in labor deals for other union workers. However, some workers, such as those at Detroit casinos and Michigan Blue Cross-Blue Shield, continue to remain on strike. Several major contracts, including those for Boeing assembly line workers and East Coast dockworkers, are set to expire in the coming year.
