Strategic Organizing Center Launches and Files Preliminary Proxy Statement

The SOC has nominated three director candidates – Maria Echaveste, Hon. Joshua Gotbaum and Wilma Liebman – for election to the Starbucks Board of Directors (the “Board”) at the upcoming Annual Meeting.

Starbucks shareholders, employees, customers and other stakeholders are encouraged to visit to share their views, sign up for important updates and learn about the SOC’s efforts to enhance the Company’s human capital management practices, facilitate constructive outcomes of ongoing labor disputes and oversee engagement with policymakers and regulators.
