Some Starbucks employees believe crime, safety concerns aren't real reason for closures [View all]

SEATTLE — A handful of local Starbucks stores will not be opening their doors Monday morning.

Citing safety concerns, the coffee chain recently announced it would be shutting down five locations in Seattle — Central District, Westlake Center, Capitol Hill, Roosevelt and Union Station — and one in Everett.

Some employees, however, believe there may be another reason behind the closures. They claim it’s in retaliation for union organizing.

Two of the stores closed Sunday are unionized. The coffee giant is in battle with several of its employees at both the 505 Union Station location in Seattle and nationwide over collective bargaining.
