    Ex-Milk Bar Employees Question Whether the Shop Closed Due to Unionization Efforts

    February 28, 2023 // Milk Bar’s eight staffers at the Harvard Square shop voted to unionize “after nearly a year of unsavory work conditions, severe pay discrepancies, and a blatant steady decline in investment of its staff and physical space,” the statement on Instagram reads. On January 11th, employees presented the store’s management with a physical letter announcing their intent to unionize with local shop NEJB Unite Here. On the same day, hours after the letter was delivered, Milk Bar president Keith Levy sent an email to staff stating that the store’s lease had been terminated and it was going to shut down, putting the entire staff out of work.
