Default A More Perfect Union

Is there a thread dedicated to labor unions on this forum? If not, there is now. If there is someone will post a link in the replies and you never have to see this again.

I understand four Michigan Starbucks (including two in my hometown Ann Arbor) have filed with the NLRB to unionize. I feel like this is part of a growing trend across the country across all industries, but maybe my bubble is small.

Amazon workers in Staten Island have gathered enough employee signatures to hold a union vote, the NLRB says

For anyone who hasn't been paying attention, there are now SIXTY unionized Starbucks locations across the country, the NLRB has filed extensive charges against Starbucks for union-busting, there is an active Teamsters campaign to publicize the horrendous conditions for workers at Amy's Kitchen (which has a strong chance, imo, of leading to unionization), and Congressional staffers just won the right to unionize. That's just off the top of my head, but the moral of the story seems to be that unionization is rising in popularity in this country and it's about damn time.

Get crap service? Don’t rage at the staff! Be a Constructive Karen!

Hand the staff information about local unions and how to organize.

What happens, happens. And a number of those Starbucks and Amazon organizers got creatively dismissed too.
