Starbucks to resume union talks to mend strained ties with employees

As the coffee chain attempts to repair its poor relationship with some of its frontline staff, Starbucks (SBUX.O) has reached out to the union representing hundreds of its outlets in the United States, according to a letter obtained by Reuters.

In a statement to Workers United President Lynne Fox, Starbucks Chief Partner Officer Sara Kelly stated, “We are proposing that bargaining resume with a set of representative stores in January 2024.”

“We are open to hearing other ideas and rules of engagement on how bargaining could proceed,” Kelly added.
