According to, The unionized locations have accused the corporation of months’ worth of union-busting retaliation, which Starbucks has denied."

Starbucks employees will be striking outside of the stores handing out, "alternative Starbucks Workers United branded cups with a 'Grinch' logo."

I will say, that is a bold move but also festive.

Here are the three locations with protests happening on Thursday, November 17th:

899 Denow Road, Hopewell

40 South Park Street, Montclair

2 Beachwood Road, Summit
