The largest labour action since a drive to unionise Starbucks outlets
started in late last year will take place on Thursday,
according to employees at more than 100 U.S. locations.
The protests are timed to take place on Red Cup Day
when Starbucks offers free reusable cups to customers who purchase holiday beverages
One of the busiest days of the year,
according to employees. Starbucks refused to disclose
the estimated number of red cups it will hand out.
