Recently, STL DSA membership voted to re-endorse Congresswoman and STL DSA member Cori Bush in her re-election campaign for both the August primary and the November general election.

As shown above, we’ll be meeting at Trinity at 10 am (in the parking lot). 

If you want to canvass but cannot this weekend, stay tuned! We’ll be announcing more opportunities to volunteer soon.

Help STL DSA Surpass $4,000 in Funds Raised for Local Starbucks Workers

So far, we’ve raised $3,977 for local Starbucks workers who are organizing their stores! The purpose of the fund is to keep organizers employed at Starbucks by counteracting the company’s union-busting tactics, which include cutting hours and firing organizers.

Help us pass $4,000! Please donate to our fund in solidarity here.

100% of proceeds are directed to Starbucks workers organizing in stores throughout the St. Louis region to support their livelihoods while they’re taking brave and risky action against one of the most powerful employers in the world.

SOLIDARITY IS BREWING! SIGN-UP FORM:

DSA has made it a nationwide priority to support organizing Starbucks workers that file in our region! If you’re a Starbucks worker at a store that has filed, a worker in an unorganized workplace, a worker in another union looking to show solidarity or you’ve been watching the labor wave from a distance but haven’t yet gotten involved, please fill out this form here and join us!

Note: If you’re a Starbucks worker at a store that hasn’t yet filed or started organizing, we can connect you with the union!

PLEASE DONATE TO THIS GOFUNDME FOR A LOCAL STARBUCKS WORKER

One Starbucks worker who was organizing for a union at a local store was recently fired in retaliation. She needs some extra help this month, and we know STL DSA will step up to help.

Please donate to her GoFundMe directly here.

CONGRATS TO WORKERS AT THE LADUE STARBUCKS!
Congratulations to our comrades at the Ladue Starbucks that voted today to unionize their store - the first store in the St. Louis area to unionize!
