Coffee giant Starbucks is firing back at the unions targeting its stores, alleging dirty tactics.
On Wednesday, the company filed unfair labor practice charges against some organizers, claiming they have shown a "consistent pattern of disturbing behavior" that has increasingly become "more aggressive" since the fall.
The charges filed are against Workers United organizers at Starbucks locations in Denver, Colorado, and Phoenix, Arizona, which have "unlawfully restrained and coerced partners in the exercise of their rights" for over the past six months, according to documents sent to the National Labor Relations Board and obtained by FOX Business.
The move comes weeks after Howard Schultz, who built the company into a global giant, resumed the role of CEO, replacing Kevin Johnson, who retired.
