Union supports came out in full force after actress and talk show host Drew Barrymore announced that she would resume her talk show in September without its writing staff. The show, which is covered under a Writers Guild of America (WGA) contract, is part of the ongoing WGA strike. 
The WGA, East immediately announced it would be picketing Barrymore’s New York-based daytime talk show.
“The @DrewBarrymoreTV Show is a WGA covered, struck show that is planning to return without its writers,” a tweet from their X (formerly Twitter) account reads. “The Guild has, and will continue to, picket struck shows that are in production during the strike. Any writing on ‘The Drew Barrymore Show’ is in violation of WGA strike rules.”
Shortly after, union supporters began a pressure campaign which eventually led to the host rescinding her decision. 
Critics of her decision included celebrities like Rosie O’Donnell, Alyssa Milano, and Cheyenne Jackson.
Starbucks Workers United saw solidarity in action when more than 1,700 customers and allies joined in their most recent customer-led day of action. The union says 592 stores and more than 11 college campuses participated to support the workers in their fight to unionize. 
“Starbucks is doing everything in its power to ignore its unionized workers, but it has to listen to its customers,” said Daisy Pitkin, field director of the unionization drive. 
Cornell University students placed pressure on the coffee giant when they successfully got the University to stop serving Starbucks in its dining halls. According to The Guardian, since then the students that led the campus boycott have been contacted by students from nearly 30 other colleges about launching efforts to kick Starbucks off their campuses. 
“If the Starbucks union launches a consumer boycott,” Cornell sophomore and leader of the effort to oust Starbucks, Nick Wilson says, “young people would certainly be in favor. Young people’s support for unions is second nature at this point.”
## **UAW support is strong**
 Members of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 299, which represents 5,000 members and most freight car haulers announced their support for UAW members in a strike against the Big Three automakers stating: “Our Teamsters will not cross strike lines.” 
The IBT told the Detroit Free Press that they “won’t deliver Detroit 3 vehicles if UAW strikes.” This is SOLIDARITY in ACTION. ν
