Spyhouse Coffee employees executed a one-day unfair labor practices strike and picketed Saturday outside the company's Northeast Minneapolis store to demand recognition of their union.

In August, employees announced their intention to join Unite Here! Local 17, Minneapolis's hospitality union. The union would cover 39 employees across five corporate-owned Spyhouse locations in the Twin Cities, a representative told KSTP.
