Starbucks: Give us a fair workweek!
Starbucks baristas in 12 states say they are now receiving as much as three weeks' notice of their schedules! The company has asked workers for more input into their schedules and seems to be rolling back the terrible practice of "clo-penings" (working back to back, opening and closing shifts). We started this campaign to demand Starbucks give us one-month advance notice of our schedules, stable hours, and access to full-time work. And the baristas we've heard from are saying things in their stores are changing.
Thanks so much for joining us. Your voice -- and that of the more than 7,800 other signers of our petition -- was crucial in bringing about more predictable schedules for thousands of baristas.
