On April 17, 2019, non-managerial workers at Ithaca Coffee Company (ICC) informed the ICC owner Julie Crowley (who also owns Triphammer Wine and Spirits), of their intentions to form a union. Workers reminded the owner of their legal obligation to abide by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and enforced by the National Labor Relations Board. Additionally, workers requested that management observe voluntary Non-Interference Election Principles.

ICCs management immediately resorted to threatening workers with retaliation, including the threat to close store locations if employees voted to join a union. Pervasive intimidation discouraging employees from discussing terms and conditions of employment with pro-union workers has created an atmosphere of chilling fear in the workplace.
