The Saskatchewan Labour Relations Board has ordered the reinstatement of a worker who led a Starbucks Coffee outlet’s union membership and certification drive.

Trevor Holloway worked part-time at Starbucks from September 2003 to October 2005.

In 2005 he was disciplined five times for being late, missing a shift and violating the company’s food and free product policies. The last action, on July 27, was called a “final warning.”
