Orlando Starbucks workers join nationwide strike as contract talks remain stalled

Starbucks workers at Central Florida’s only unionized store, in Oviedo, joined a national strike action on Saturday, along with roughly 1,000 workers at over 100 Starbucks locations elsewhere in the U.S. Starbucks Workers United has dubbed it the “Double-Down Strike.” After kicking off Friday, it’s set to last three days for some stores — Oviedo workers are just joining for Saturday — in what the union says is the longest collective action the union has organized since the campaign first kicked off last year.
