Starbucks Distances Itself from Union for Posting Tweet Expressing Palestinian Solidarity

“Starbucks Workers United,” a union representing about 9,000 baristas expressed solidarity with Palestine and its resistance on X, before deleting the tweet.

 The union had retweeted a tweet showing a photo of a bulldozer from the Palestinian resistance tearing down the Israeli occupation fence. In the retweet they stated “Solidarity with Palestine!” 

Multiple Zionist politicians took to social media calling for boycotts against the coffee company. 

Starbucks released a statement distancing itself from the union: “We unequivocally condemn acts of terrorism, hate, and violence, and disagree with the statements and views expressed by Workers United and its members. Workers United’s words and actions belong to them, and them alone.” 

The statement from Starbucks continued to mention that the union doesn’t represent or speak for the Starbucks Coffee Company.
