Beloved coffee chain Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) is facing a brewing conflict with its workers, who are slowly starting to unionize throughout the company.

Starbucks announced pay raises in May, but only for non-unionized stores, citing a requirement to bargain before the company can make any compensation or benefits changes at unionized stores.
