Tucson Starbucks workers approve unionization

Workers at a Starbucks in Tucson approved a vote to become the fifth location in the state to unionize. 

The Euclid Avenue and University Boulevard store’s vote passed 11-3.

The location joins more than 170 other stores in the chain across the U.S. that also approved unionization.

Bill Whitmire with Starbucks Workers United Union Drive says the push comes as employees are unhappy with pay, scheduling and health care.
