Employees at yet another San Antonio Starbucks store have unionized as part of the push sweeping the Seattle-based coffee chain.

Workers at the Starbucks at Wurzbach and Blanco roads voted 10-2 to join the Starbucks Workers United, according to a Twitter announcement from the labor organization's San Antonio chapter.

At least four other Alamo City Starbucks locations have unionized since April. Others have also filed paperwork to do so.
In a recent interview with the Current, 20-year-old Parker Davis, a barista at the Wurzbach and Blanco Starbucks said he felt compelled to organize after a shift supervisor was burned on the job in May. He said his injured coworker had to find a replacement before leaving the store, which took more than a half hour.

So far, around 200 Starbucks stores around the country have voted for union representation, according to CNBC.
