Starbucks settles worker complaint

October 02, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Starbucks Corp. has settled a National Labor Relations Board complaint with an employee who said he was fired for promoting union activity.

The agreement is the gourmet coffee chain's third settlement of an NLRB complaint alleging that the company was trying to dissuade employees from joining a union.

Under the settlement with Minneapolis barista Erik Forman, who was reinstated, Starbucks will post a notice in Forman's store for 60 days informing workers they have a right to unionize under federal law.
