Starbucks CEO Schultz says days of ‘false promises’ are over -Breaking
(Reuters) – Starbucks Corp (NASDAQ) Howard Schultz is the Chief Executive Officer at NASDAQ. In a Monday video, he assured his staff that the “days of lies” are now over.
Schulz declared that he and his team would keep their promises. He said this in a video that was made available to Reuters Friday.
Schultz returned last month to the top of the company and is currently dealing with an increasing union drive in U.S. cafés.
The CEO said that he will be focusing on employee concerns in his “co-creation session” like the need for additional training, guaranteed hours and problems with broken ice machines, as well as maintenance and repair delays.
“I’m aware that there were many decisions made in the short-term which have led to adverse effects. The CEO of the firm he assumed in 1987 stated that we are going back to the beginning.
More than 170 Starbucks U.S. Starbucks outlets have requested the NLRB to hold union elections. Since August, at least 10 Starbucks locations voted for the Workers United union.
Two employees from a Phoenix, Arizona cafe were accused by a federal labor panel of illegally taking retaliation against them for trying to unionize.
The company was also urged by $3.4 trillion worth of investors to cease sending its workers anti-union communication and adopt a neutral policy toward unions.
