► From CNBC — Starbucks will have at least one unionized cafe in Buffalo, N.Y. — a U.S. first for the chain — After a monthslong battle, Starbucks workers in Buffalo, N.Y., supported efforts to unionize at least one cafe. The result marks the first successful attempt in the U.S. at unionizing within the giant coffee chain since Starbucks went public nearly three decades ago and could send ripples through the restaurant industry. Workers at the Elmwood Avenue location voted 19 to eight in favor of unionizing under Workers United New York, a branch of the SEIU.
