Workers at Greeley Starbucks location vote to unionize

GREELEY — Starbucks workers at the 11th Avenue location in Greeley Tuesday voted overwhelmingly to unionize, becoming the latest Colorado location to do so.

Workers at the 2604 11th Ave. location voted 20-1 to unionize, in a vote officiated by the National Labor Relations Board. Votes were cast from 8 to 10:30 a.m., and from 3:30 to 6 p.m.

Workers first demanded union recognition on Aug. 5, with 90% of employees petitioning for recognition as members of the Chicago & Midwest Regional Joint Board of Workers United.

Unionization efforts at Starbucks locations have picked up steam in recent months, with workers at 230 U.S. Starbucks locations opting to be represented by Workers United.

Starbucks workers at a location in Superior in April became the first in the state to unionize, with eight locations now unionized in Colorado. An election in Breckenridge is scheduled for Oct. 18.
