Help STL DSA Raise More Funds for Organizing Workers!

So far, we’ve raised $4,095 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 raise more funds for these workers! 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 of the Starbucks workers who was organizing for a union at the Kingshighway store was fired in retaliation recently. She needs some extra help,, and we know STL DSA will step up to help. 

Please donate to her GoFundMe directly here.

CONGRATS TO WORKERS AT THE LADUE, KINGSHIGHWAY & CHIPPEWA AND HAMPTON & WISE STORES!
Congratulations to our comrades at all three St. Louis-area stores that have voted to unionize!
