The effort to unionize a Starbucks in Warwick has ended in a tie, meaning the store will not be represented by a union, the organizer said Tuesday.Cassie Burke, a barista who had been leading the effort to unionize the Pace Boulevard location, said in a Twitter thread that the loss shouldn't dissuade others from trying to unionize.'Even in our case, our loss was only by a hair,' Burke said. 'You can do it. And it's worth it.'According to National Labor Relations Board records, the updated vote tally was nine votes to nine.
