STL DSA Votes Yes on $2,000 for Starbucks Solidarity Fund

At last week’s Chapter Meeting, membership voted yes on a resolution to donate $2,000 in matching funds to the Solidarity Fund and to begin a fundraising campaign to raise at least another $2,000.

Outside of this $2,000 in matching funds, we’ve raised $1,500, and we’ve given out $1,400 to workers. 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. 

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! 

Thank You for Helping Us Reach $10,000 for MOAF! Still Time to Donate

Our fund-a-thon team has officially raised more than $10,000 to support Missouri Abortion Fund!

We are deeply grateful to everyone who has donated and shared our team’s page. Our team is still accepting donations at fund.nnaf.org/stldsa22, so please give if you can!
