    The Supreme Court agrees to hear Starbucks appeal in Memphis union case

    January 17, 2024 // The case has been among the most closely watched in the more than two-year-old effort to unionize Starbucks’s company-owned U.S. stores. Starbucks fired seven employees in Memphis in February 2022, citing safety. The Seattle coffee giant said they violated company policy by reopening a store after closing time and inviting nonemployees—including a television crew—to come inside and move throughout the store. But the NLRB intervened, saying the company was unlawfully interfering in workers’ right to organize and that the store had routinely allowed employees to gather there after closing time.
