Puget Sound Business Journal: Starbucks baristas demand meeting with CEO Howard Schultz to discuss scheduling issues

Puget Sound Business Journal, 9/29/2015

Beginning at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, baristas at the company's global headquarters in Seattle distributed leaflets to customers and wrote #OurTimeCounts on cups to "generate conversation about the campaign for weeks that work," advocacy group Working Washington said in a release on Tuesday.


Yet in the Working Washington release on Tuesday, workers claim they have yet to receive schedules more than five days in advance while they are required to submit vacation requests three weeks in advance.
