Fighting For a Union: An Interview with Starbucks Workers Union Leader Daniel Gross
01 Oct 2004 19:02 GMT
Daniel Gross is the lead organizer in the ongoing IWW IU/660 effort to establish the only unionized Starbucks in the United States. He’s a worker at the 36th and Madison Starbucks in New York City, the immediate focus of the campaign. During a demonstration in front of his workplace during the RNC, Daniel was arrested along with co-worker (and union supporter) Anthony Polanco. He now faces a trial in October, the most serious charge being resisting arrest. Left Hook’s Derek Seidman recently had a chance to catch up with Daniel Gross to find out more about his predicament and the state of the union campaign.
