Possible revision: NPR discusses the potential impact of the Starbucks case at the Supreme Court on unions nationwide

The Supreme Court will hear a case involving seven Starbucks workers, including barista Florentino Escobar, who were fired after announcing their intent to unionize. The justices will focus on whether a lower court should have ordered Starbucks to reinstate the workers during an investigation. This case could impact labor organizing efforts nationwide. The National Labor Relations Board uses a 10(j) injunction to halt unfair labor practices, and Starbucks is challenging different standards used by federal circuits to grant injunctions. The outcome of this case could send a strong signal to judges regarding labor rights protection.
