Starbucks Wants to Ditch Mail-In Voting for Union Elections, Requests Future Elections Held in Person


This is awkward!

Starbucks, one of the most far-left corporations out there, is now asking the National Labor Relations Board to put a halt on all mail-in ballot union elections.

Weren’t mail-in ballots secure for elections?

That’s what leftist corporations and mainstream media told us.

The company also requested all future union elections be held in person.

Maybe Starbucks now realizes mail-in ballots are ripe with voter fraud because there is no chain of custody.

The coffee shop chain requested all future union elections be held in person after allegations have surfaced of improper coordination between board officials and the union.

NBC News reported:

Starbucks is asking the federal labor board to suspend all mail-in ballot union elections nationwide, alleging misconduct in the voting process by the board’s personnel and the union organizing its baristas.

The Seattle-based coffee giant wrote in a letter to the chairman and general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board on Monday that the labor board’s officials acted inappropriately during an election in the Kansas City area and has likely acted similarly in other elections. Starbucks cited a career NLRB professional who approached the company as a whistleblower.

More than 220 Starbucks cafes in the U.S. have voted to unionize, according to an NLRB tally as of Friday. An additional 34 elections have been ordered or are in progress, and seven more stores are waiting to schedule elections.

Starbucks Workers United and the NLRB did not immediately respond to requests for comment from CNBC.

In addition to asking for a pause on all scheduled mail-in elections at its U.S. stores, Starbucks is requesting that all future elections be held in person while the allegations can be investigated.

Meanwhile, Starbucks and its CEO, Howard Schultz, continue to push for vote-by-mail in U.S. elections, despite concerns among some voters that it, too, may be subject to irregularities and a lack of oversight.

In a 2021 press release, Schultz urged employees (“partners”) to participate in voting, directing them to “ so you can register, request a mail in ballot, and learn more about the issues that matter to you and your loved ones – all in one place.”

The website includes information about vote-by-mail. The website is “powered” by Democracy Works, a non-profit that is funded by left-of-center donor foundations.

Other companies with left-of-center political views have also expressed irritation with vote-by-mail — when it is used to unionize their own employees.

Last year, tried to prevent vote-by-mail in union elections to preserve “vote fidelity.”
