Starbucks To Close Boston Location Months After It Unionized

It’s been a little over a year since the wave of organizing began at Starbucks. Since then, workers at over 250 locations have voted yes to forming unions.

These victories happened in the face of one of the most intense union-busting efforts that we’ve seen in a long time.

True to its anti-union reputation, the company has moved to closed stores that coincidentally voted union recently.

Last year it announced closures of unionized stores in Kansas, Seattle, Maine, and New York.

Its most recent announcement affects a store in Boston. The Instagram account, Only in Boston, broke the news:

“Eight months after Starbucks workers at the 443 Boylston Street store voted 5-1 to unionize, the corporation has announced it is permanently closing the location on Sunday, February 5.”

We hope that the NLRB investigates these suspicious closings.
