Unionized Starbucks store in Vancouver to close as lease expires
One of the few unionized Starbucks stores in B.C. is closing at the end of September.
She says the store is one of the smallest in the Starbucks portfolio, and it wasn’t possible to make necessary investments to renovate it, but workers will have the opportunity to transfer to a nearby location.
Twenty-two workers at the café voted to join the United Steelworkers Union in February, becoming one of a handful of unionized Starbucks locations in B.C. represented by that union.
