GUILDERLAND, N.Y. (NEWS10) — More local Starbucks workers have voted to unionize. The Crossgates Mall store is the thirty-first Starbucks in New York to join Starbucks Workers United.

So far, 238 Starbucks stores in 33 states have won union elections. Fifty-two have lost an election.

The historic organizing drive was inspired by workers at a Buffalo store, who were the first to successfully unionize in December 2021.
