WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — The employees of Starbucks Coffee at the intersection of Rock Road and Central voted to unionize on Tuesday, becoming the first store in Wichita to do so. The vote for unionization was 9-6.
According to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the parties now have five business days to file objections to the elections. If no objections are filed, the results will be certified, and the employer must begin bargaining in good faith with the union.
Stores in Massachusetts, Tennessee, New York, Illinois, Colorado, Arizona, Washington and Oregon have also filed petitions.
